Holes is highly recommended and playing through December 5th at Merle Reskin Theatre. DePaul Theatre school does a fabulous job of bringing affordable, high quality children's theatre productions to life.
Holes,was written and adapted for the stage by one of our favorite authors, Louis Sachar. He's known for his Wayside School series and a hilarious, highly creative guy with a delightfully twisted sense of humor.
ChiIL Mama also recommends MCA Free Family Days--11-3PM every second Saturday. This weekend, come check out artist Liam Gillick's work, and create your own art. Museum admission and all activities are free for families with kids 12 and under.
