Theater for kids

Children’s literature includes some pretty quirky books.  I was only vaguely aware of Arnie the Donut before this review appeared in the Chicago Tribune of a musical based on the picture book.  It sounds like a hoot!

They have run several articles recently about children’s theater in Chicago.  Some, like Arnie, are based on children’s or young adult books.  Another article described a new show especially for babies.  Theater for children is also the focus of Stages, Sights & Sounds, an international performance festival presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival.

In a little less than a month, the Emerald City Theatre Company will be coming from Chicago to perform Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a kick-off for our Summer Reading Program.  Thanks to the Friends of the Library, you can enjoy this show at the Performing Arts Center for free!
