Mars Williams (Liquid Soul/Psychedelic Furs Fame) gives an airborne sax solo Sunday at Chicago Folk and Roots Fest with Soul Sonic Sirkus! (we'll have a big, photo filled recap of their whole show up on ChiIL Live Shows/ ChiIL Mama this week)

Chicago's theatre and music scene is HOT in the summer months and ChiIL Mama's here to help you ChiIL Out with free family 4 packs.

Enter at the bottom of this post for your chance to win all the following cool tickets.   And check back in early and often, as we frequently add more shows as the month progresses.

First off we have 2 short n sweet give aways this week.   Winners will be chosen tomorrow at noon:

2 family 4 packs of tickets to BenFest 2011-one for Saturday 7/16 and one for Sunday 7/17.   

We'll have a full listing of who's performing and all the great family friendly activities, and maybe even more fun surprises for our readers soon.    BenFest made the smart choice to relocate to the weekend after Folk and Roots Fest this year, so more families can enjoy both.    Tate from How Far to Austin booked the bands, so they've got a sweeet line up.    Follow ChiIL Mama and BENFEST on Facebook for 2 extra entries.   Share on Twitter, your FB page or other social media and come back and enter again.   Good things come to those who share.

Opening TODAY!! 

Get out and see Chicago's award winning Shakespeare Theater's production, The Adventures of Pinocchio.   *This family 4 pack is good for your choice of dates throughout the run, pending availability.  

The traditional Italian story of a wooden puppet yearning to be a real boy springs to life with inventive and awe-inspiring puppetry, transforming CST's Courtyard Theater into a larger-than-life, European marionette stage. Carved out of wood by the lonely toymaker Geppetto, Pinocchio tumbles from one disastrous situation to another in search of adventure—only to discover that, in the end, all he really needs is an unselfish heart and the love of his father. Based on Carlo Collodi's classic tale, this world premiere CST Family musical illuminates the bond between parents and children in a magical performance that is sure to enchant audiences of all ages!

Check out Chicago Shakespeare Theater's website for show times and details as well as behind the scenes fun. 

We will pick our Chicago Shakespeare winner on Free Ticket Tuesday 7/19.   Kindie concert ticket winners are picked on the Free Ticket Tuesday preceding the show.   Mama says sharing rocks.   Remember, you can enter to win multiple times, with every documented social media share, until each give away closes.   Early and often..
