Backstage with the TimeLine Theatre Company

TimeLine was founded in April 1997 by six graduates of The Theatre School at DePaul University. The six founders each donated $50 to start the company. Over the past 14 seasons that initial investment of $300 has grown to encompass a theatre with an annual budget approaching $1 million managed by six full-time staff members, featuring the work of more than 100 artists seen by 15,000 audience members each season.
