On Wednesday, May 4, 2023, Stageplayers hosted their second annual variety show in the studio theatre. A number of student performers displayed a variety of talents during the show, including singing, acrobatics and instrumentals. The variety show raised funds for A.B.L.E., a Chicago nonprofit organization that creates theatre and film for and by people with down syndrome and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. The audience was encouraged to contribute donations before and after the show using a QR code posted outside the theater doors.
