If you need a cab after the performance just tell one of the staff members. They have a cabbie light right outside the main doors that they will activate for you. As soon as the cabs see that light go on they will pull up right to the curb and pick you up.

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.
