ChiIL Mama's Chi, IL Picks List:
Here at ChiIL Mama and ChiIL Live Shows, we've been huge fans of the excellent circus arts productions and classes at Actors Gymnasium for years. My own teens were in their youth circus shows the past 4 years, and only stopped this fall because they were cast in school shows and cheer that conflicted. They're hoping to audition for the spring youth circus.
These fun, high energy productions are a joy to see, and partner kids with top talent in the industry. As I review professional shows all over town, my kids often come as my +1, and it's been great to discover how many names they recognize in shows as people they've worked with at Actors Gymnasium. Quite a few actors, directors, costumers and more, are familiar names and faces to my teens now. Come on out and see the next generation of Chicago's circus artists in a whimsical all ages show. Two weekends, six shows only!
About Almost Wonderland:
Be immersed in multiple worlds in this new spin on beloved children’s classic tales created by Sammy Zeisel and Jason Clark, Almost Wonderland.
Dalice (they/them) doesn’t quite fit in, especially at school. Dropped into a fantasy world reminiscent of Wonderland, Oz and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with the aid of a magical book, they discover that they’re not the only ones that are struggling.
This show is for all kids, even the kids at heart!
