Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Snowflake, recently seen in Minneapolis, actor Gale LaJoye brings his unique and inspiring story to Chicago Children's Theatre.

As Snowflake, Lajoye stages a tale of a kindhearted soul who, with little more than imagination and hope, breathes life into what others regard as useless, transforming the simplest of objects into comedic treasures. 

Without uttering a single word, this incredibly versatile actor amazes an all-ages audience while speaking volumes about humanity, innocence and our need for compassion, understanding and joy. Broadwayworld.com called Snowflake "heartwarming and hilarious."

COMING SOON: 
Snow Angel
Chicago Children's Theatre will present a limited, one-week-only engagement of Snow Angel, devised by Quest Theatre in Calgary. 

This original, wordless piece cleverly uses movement, masks and music to tell the story of a brother and sister who discover a magical winter wonderland in a new snowfall. Their only obstacle is the bird-loving old man who lives next door and wants to keep them off his property. 

Full of fun, creative staging, physical antics and audience interaction, Snow Angel also gently teaches lessons about caring and friendship. Toronto Fun Places raved, "Your kids will be thrilled."

Snow Angel is a Younger Stages show, ideal for ages 3 to 8. Performances are February 16-21 at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts, 1016 N. Dearborn St., Chicago. 

Show times are Tuesday at 10 a.m.; Wednesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. and noon; Friday at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.; Saturday at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m. Purchase tickets at chicagochildrenstheatre.org or call (877) 222-9555.

Chicago Children's Theater offers deeply discounted group rates for schools, playgroups, birthday parties and scouting groups. For group sales, email GroupSales@chicagochildrenstheatre.org or call (773) 227-0180 x 13.
