We love the Chicago Kids Company. If you live in the Chicagoland area, I can't recommend this children's theater company highly enough. We've seen two other shows at the Beverly Arts Center besides this one (The Tortoise and the Hare, and the Three Little Pigs), and they've been very professionally done. And you can't beat the $10 ticket price.
My mom went with us on the 8th of this month to see the holiday performance of Mrs. Clause. It was really delightful. And we even had front row seats, something I hadn't expected at all! I love, love, love the theater, and so far the kids seem to love it too, so I think it will be a big part of our lives in the years to come. When they get a little bit older, I can't wait to take them to see a Shakespeare play at the Shakespeare Theater downtown at Navy Pier. Now, those tickets cost quite a bit more, so I want to make sure the kids are really ready for and want to see those plays.
After the play, the kids posed for pictures - Jared with one of the "villains" of the play, and Alexa with Mrs. Clause. What are some of your favorite memories of theater with your kids?
What if you could grow up learning the things you were interested in? What if you grew up having everyday adventures that you helped design? What if your adventures lead you to an amazing world of new experiences, ideas and creativity?
Welcome to the adventures of two children growing up living and learning this way. Join me as I record our adventures, occassional philosophical asides on the joy of interest-led learning, and the eclectic resources we discover along the way.
