Chicago Shakespeare Theater is performing a special show called “Witches, Wizards, Spells and Elves: The Magic of Shakespeare” on January 21st and 22nd only in their beautiful Navy Pier theater.
Theatrical magic and musical masters blend to draw young audiences into the performing arts in an hour-long family concert. Chicago Shakespeare actors and The Chicago Chamber Musicians bring together theater and classical music to create an interactive concert, giving children the opportunity to discover, up-close, the excitement of live performance.
Recommended for children ages 5 and up. They have 10am and 11:30am showtimes on both days. At 11:00 a.m., also on both days, performers will be available for autographs and pictures in the lobby, while young musicians demonstrate and answer questions about the featured instruments.
If you have never seen a show in this theater, you must check it out. The room is not super big but the seats surround the stage on 3 sides and have multiple balcony levels so everyone feels like they are right in the middle of the action. We saw Pinnochio there last summer and my boys and I were just wow-ed!! I’m sure this show will be pure magic too!
