Few Broadway musicals are more beloved than The Sound of Music, and now you can see it live in a production by Lyric Opera of Chicago, with Hollywood star Billy Zane stepping into the role of Captain von Trapp. It's the story of Maria, an aspiring nun who takes a job as governess to the widowed Captain von Trapp's seven children. As she gradually earns the heart of the family -- and their father -- the von Trapps are threatened by the rise of the Nazis, and must figure out how to escape Austria. "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "The Lonely Goatherd" and the soaring title song are just a few of the unforgettable melodies in this classic work of musical theater. The cast includes opera stars Christine Brewer and Elizabeth Futral, Jenn Gambatese of Broadway's Wicked and All Shook Up, and Edward Hibbert of Frasier. Learn More

Super Adorable for kids. I love that the animals were actual people and not people in huge costumes. So personable. Costumes were simple, yet so cute. Loved the Ducks costume. The actor who played Wilbur was adorable and you can tell he loves his role. The play was just the right timing too...an hour,..enough for a great time and the kids didn't get squirley. It was kinda a musical and I loved that part. My daughter who is three wont' stop talking about it. Thank you!

Charlotte’s Web tells the story of Fern, a little girl who loves a sweet pig named Wilbur, and their friendship with a spider named Charlotte. Wilbur lives an idyllic barnyard life until he learns that he will soon be sent to the slaughterhouse. In order to help save him, Charlotte crafts a plan to spin kind words about Wilbur in her web, hoping that Farmer Zuckerman will realize what a wonderful pig he is and spare his life. Thanks to Charlotte and the mischievous rat Templeton, Wilbur not only lives, but also becomes a prize pig, ensuring his place on the farm forever. This endearing tale for the whole family celebrates the value of friendship, love and devotion.
