Sing a song to your sons and daughters - or let someone else do it for you. July is packed full of children's musicals, from Lookingglass Theatre Company's Black Beauty: the Musical (July 7 - Aug. 12), to Victory Gardens' production of the one and only High School Musical (July 15 - Aug. 9), and, at the Metropolis Performing Arts Center, a rock-tastic trip to Oz in The Wiz (July 16 - 22). Even Chicago Shakespeare Theater is joining in on the musical mayhem with How Can You Run With a Shell on Your Back? (July 5 - Aug. 12), which modernizes Aesop's most beloved fables. Of course, CST also has their Short Shakespeare! production of The Taming of the Shrew (July 12 - Aug. 12), an abridged version designed to engage audiences of all ages.
