“As theater workers, we are usually so focused on our audience. This pandemic and the closure of our stages has turned the tides and it is really important that we focus on the amazing individuals who make up the Chicago theatre community,” said Collaboraction Artistic Director Anthony Moseley. “Stress, depression and anxiety are all on the rise as our stages remain closed.

And as long as our theaters are shuttered, Call Time will continue.”


This vitally important new awareness campaign from Collaboraction, the National Alliance on Mental

Illness Chicago, Season of Concern and the League of

Chicago Theatres is designed to cultivate and share mental wellness resources with Chicago theater workers while 

de-stigmatizing mental illness.


Reach out and call a friend to tell other Chicago theatre workers about Call Time resources available to them.

Financial assistance to cover the cost of therapy is available through Season of Concern, the emergency fund for Chicago’s theater community.

Biscotto-Miller Fund

Founded in 1987, Season of Concern is dedicated to providing financial assistance to Chicagoland theater practitioners, both Equity and Non-Equity, impacted by illness, injury, or circumstance that prevents them from working. 


*Note: Applications for the CTWR Fund are currently paused due to high demand. We will update these details when more funds come available. 


Recognizing the enormous financial burden to those whose incomes are being adversely impacted by COVID-19, the League of Chicago Theatres has developed a Chicago Theatre Workers Relief Fund with enormous gratitude to The Saints for their generous seed grant as well as more than 600 donors who have contributed to the fund. This Fund is intended to help replace lost income due to theatre closures.
