The convention hotel is the Marriott Oak Brook. No sessions will be held at the hotel, but we have arranged a limited number of rooms for $109/night, and many of us will gather in the hotel lobby/bar Thursday evening. Rooms have been reserved for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights (September 22, 23, 24) because you might not want to drive home after Saturday's late evening events--specifically, watching the play Clybourne Park and attending a "talk-back session" with the director after the play. 
The DEADLINE for hotel registration was September 8, 2022. After 9/8/22, you can call the hotel to see if rooms are still available, but rates will probably be higher. 

Get your TICKETS:

We hope you will join us Saturday evening to watch the Buffalo Theatre Ensemble's performance of Clybourne Park. This is a rare opportunity made possible by our location at the College of DuPage. The McAninch Arts Center has set aside a number of tickets at a large discount rate ($21.00/ticket plus a $2.00 fee = $23.00). The reduced-rate tickets are no longer available. The deadline was September 10, 2022. To purchase your ticket(s) at the regular rate, if available:

Call the MAC box office 630-942-4000 between 12:00 pm and 6:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday
