**GIVEAWAY ALERT** One of my favorite things to do with my kiddos is back and I am so excited!! Chicago Children’s Theater has a brand new show geared towards kids of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre hosts the return of internationally acclaimed Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia to the Windy City, with Mermaid’s all-new production of
Featuring evocative music, stunning visual effects and innovative puppetry, Mermaid Theatre’s all-new triple‐bill brings to life three Eric Carle all-time family favorites – Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
I have always loved how CCT exposes kids to high quality theater by presenting well-loved and endearing stories that appeal both to kids and their parents. I have never been bored or annoyed even for a second at any of the shows we’ve been lucky to see there. They are all very well-done, well-performed and staged, and entertaining for both me and my kiddos. I know this new show about books that I have read to my boys literally hundreds of times will not disappoint. Check out a glimpse:
