Children’s shows in Chicago
Want to look cool to your favorite pipsqueak (and adult friends, too)? Introduce them to Barrel of Monkeys' joyously long-running public show. The troupe conducts writing workshops with CPS grade school students by day, then transforms the kids' stories into hilarious or heartfelt skits and songs, performed with abandon by a spirited ensemble.
Drury Lane's hourlong, kid-friendly rendition of Dickens's tale of holiday redemption has played seasonally for more than 25 years.
