Finding live theater to take your children to can be a bit of a challenge. Here in Chicago, we are lucky to have as many options as we do, but we don’t always know where to look. One great option is the Marriott Theatre: Schoolhouse Rock Live!, located in Lincolnshire, Il. I have seen several productions there with my children and we thoroughly enjoyed them. They run for about an hour, they are bright, lively and colorful and best of all, the actors are used to hearing the chirping of small voices.
Marriott Theatre: Schoolhouse Rock Live!: The Marriott Theatre is currently putting on a production of Schoolhouse Rock Live! through May 4, 2014. The show runs for an hour and all productions take place at 10AM Thursday-Sundays. You can purchase tickets online or by calling 847-634-0200. There are group sales options available. Here is more about the show:
“Meet Tom, a nervous school teacher who learns how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as “Just A Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly,” and “Conjunction Junction.” The Emmy Award-winning 1970’s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, and more through clever, tuneful songs will light up the Marriott Theatre for Young Audiences stage!”
You can be comfortable taking a child of any age to the Marriott Theatre: Schoolhouse Rock Live! production. My son was five and my daughter was two when we first visited a Marriott Theatre production and I saw many children who were younger than mine. This is an excellent way to get your children involved in live theater and start their appreciation young!
