SynopsisIn this homage to his Midwestern childhood, Bradbury brings to life one unforgettable summer full of skinned knees, the smell of freshly cut grass, squishy new sneakers, time machines and a fortune telling Tarot witch. Bradbury’s magical story is a sensory explosion that reminds us to cherish the simple pleasures of youth. Founded in 2005 with its Inaugural Production, A Year With Frog and Toad, Chicago Children’s Theatre strives to provide affordable and accessible theater for families and area school children. The company focuses on the production of first-rate family theater in Chicago, with top writing, performing and directorial talent as well as high-quality design and production expertise. Chicago Children’s Theatre aspires to enrich our community through diverse and significant theatrical programming that engages and inspires the child in all of us.
