You Say Olympus, I Say West Loop
Artemis, who has been stuck in the Elysian Field for eternity, finally meets 9 year old Sophia who has offered to show her around the West Loop. The only issue is that Artemis, impressed by the grandeur of the West Loop, keeps on confusing the West Loop with the Wondrous City of Olympus. Together Sophia and the Greek Goddess Artemis explore the wonders of the West Loop. Join them as Sophia takes Artemis to the Greek Town, Mary Bartelme Park, Skinner Park, Chicago Children’s Theater, WNDR Museum, West Loop Public Library, Restaurant Row, and the Time Out Market. As the listeners loop around the West Loop they are encouraged to take a moment to appreciate the eclectic murals present in the vibrant West Loop.
About CCT Walkie Talkies
Walkie Talkies are fun, totally original audio experiences families can listen to together while exploring different Chicago neighborhoods. Each episode was commissioned by Chicago Children’s Theatre and created by a different local theater artist, resulting in a fun and educational new audio series that children and families can enjoy together, outdoors and safely, even over the winter months, while learning more about the beautiful city they live in.
