​Jackalope Theatre Company is now solely located at The Broadway Armory venue! Our first venue, The Frontier, permanently closed in November 2020.  


There is a parking lot adjacent to Broadway Armory Park at 5917 N Broadway. The entrance to the lot is on Thorndale Avenue, and parking is $2 per hour until 9 p.m., and then $1 after that.  We recommend parking for a total of 3 hours to ensure you will not be ticketed. In addition, metered street parking is available on both Broadway and Thorndale Avenue. These meters operate Monday - Saturday, and parking is free on Sundays. For more information about Chicago parking meters, visit While street parking is available, please leave enough time to find a space and get to the theater before the show starts, as late seating is not usually possible.


​Broadway Armory Park is steps from the Thorndale Red Line Station. Exit the station and head west to Broadway and the Park is on the southeast corner. You can also take the #36 Broadway Bus to Thorndale Avenue.


Jackalope is proud to produce in Broadway Armory Park, but it’s a big, old building that can be difficult to navigate. Once you arrive at Broadway Armory Park, a member of our company will greet you in the lobby. There are purple signs along the walls directing you to the theater, which is on the second level, above the gym. It's a large building, so we recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to showtime to give ample time to make your way to the theater.

If you require elevator access to the second floor, please contact so that we may make arrangements to meet you in the lobby and take you up the elevator.


We are thrilled to be partnered with Cellars Bar & Grill as our dining partner for each show. Jackalope Theatre patrons can enjoy 10% off their entire bill on the date of the show. Please bring ticket confirmation as proof of purchase, and reservations are recommended for dinner before the show. There are many other great neighborhood options for dining in the area, available both pre- and post-show. Our favorites are Mas alla del Sol (Mexican), Mango Pickle (Indian), Moody's (burgers and beer), Indie (sushi and Thai), and Veranda (Pizza).
