About

 

With a nod to the historic past of this grand facility, Mayne Stage features a lounge and performance space that reflects the unique and diverse history of Rogers Park. Mayne Stage can accommodate a variety of events in its 220-seat multipurpose entertainment venue.

The theater, on Morse Avenue at Wayne Avenue, opened as Morse Theater in 1912, a vaudeville and movie house house. In the 1930s, the facility was remodeled using an Art Deco theme and renamed the Co-Ed Theater because of its proximity to Loyola University. The Co-Ed closed in 1954, and from 1956 until 2008 the building served in various capacities from synagogue to a shoe repair store.

Now, with a recent multi-million dollar restoration and renovation project, the entertainment  venue is poised to be a magnet for significant development in this north-side neighborhood.

With state-of-the-art audio and video systems, the venue offers space for weddings, studio recordings, rehearsals, educational programs, corporate events and private parties.
