There is a parking garage that charges $10 to park. Street parking is very hard to find.

Description

Chicago Children’s Theatre presents Dandelion Wine, written by Ray Bradbury, adapted from his novel.

In this homage to his Midwestern childhood, Ray 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 audiences to cherish the simple pleasures of youth.

This production is directed by Eric Rosen.
