Two Tony Award-winning Chicago theatre companies — the Goodman and Steppenwolf — will take part in the 3rd annual Flag Football Game Oct. 26.



Team members include actors, artisans, crew, staffers and current cast members from both the Goodman Theatre and the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Kickoff is 9:30 AM.

The event also includes a "two-act" halftime show performed by each company, including young theatre ambassadors from Goodman Theatre’s Youth Arts Council.

Admission to the game is free, but spectators are encouraged to bring donations for either of the two supported charities: Breaking Bread, one of Greater Chicago Food Depository’s partner soup kitchens; or Bin Donated, a non-profit organization located in Lincoln Park that distributes toiletries to Chicago-area shelters providing refuge for seniors, women, teens and victims of abuse.

The football game will be held just north of Chicago’s Diversey Driving Range (141 W. Diversey).
