Chicago Children's Theatre Announces 2008-2009 Season
The season opener, If All the World Were Paper, is currently running through November 30. Tim Webb's piece, originally created by Oily Cart of London, follows the journey of Paper Girl from her birth as a string of paper cut-outs, through the bottom of the sea of ink, to a jungle island.
The Selfish Giant, an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde short story by Blair Thomas will run January 17-March 1. The show uses puppets and music to bring to life Wilde's tale about the power of friendship and generosity. The design team will feature Jesse Mooney-Bullock (puppet design), Meredith Miller (costume design), and Michael Smith (music). The season will close with The Hundred Dresses, March 27-May 17, an adaptation of Eleanor Estes's book by Ralph Covert and G. Riley Mills.For more information, call 773-227-0180 or visit chicagochildrenstheatre.org.
