Spend the afternoon outdoors for a charming adventure with Theatre-Hikes' adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland. The theater company's innovative approach marries stage favorites and nature walks, with scenes held in various locations in parks and along hiking trails. Bring a blanket, water and comfortable shoes so you can enjoy the surrounding natural beauty during jaunts between scenes. Theatre-Hikes kicks off its 2014 season with this tale of a young girl's fall into a rabbit hole and the ensuing journey. This version of Alice in Wonderland is performed by six actors in and around the Pullman State Historic Site, at the center of the planned Pullman community, a living time capsule of the Industrial Revolution.

What a beautiful afternoon with "the arts"! I wasn't too sure about the concept of a hike and a play, and I'm still not convinced of the relationship between the two. No matter, I enjoyed the experience regardless.
"The Three Musketeers" seemed to me (I'm no theatre critic) to be very well done. All of the actors played their roles very well, the play kept my interest, the costumes and props were fine. All in all, I thought it was a wonderful production.
The "stage" itself though, was both the best part, and the most unrelated part to the play. There was not much that could be done to tie the Pullman site into the story, and so there was no real connection for me. On the other hand, the location was a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse of a beautiful and important historic site, one that otherwise may never be experienced.
I left that afternoon feeling very satisfied - both from enjoying an excellent production, and from taking a step back into Chicago's interesting history. I am excited about trying this same idea again - I believe there is an upcoming production at the Morton Arboretum. I might recommend toting a lawn chair if you don't want to be on your feet for 3 hours straight though. Enjoy! I certainly did!!
A blanket, camping chair and water bottle are suggested.
