Chicago Children’s Theatre is offering Winter Theatre Adventure Camp: Snowy Day with Beatrix Potter. Send your kids to Chicago Children’s Theatre for a high-energy week of theatre while you get some last-minute, much needed post-holiday relaxation.

For 3 days, campers will create a performance with dialogue, singing, and puppetry – all inspired by the winter landscape of Beatrix Potter. Kids will collaborate on creating the script, learning a musical number and accompanying dance, and also build sets and props – all part of an interactive trunk and puppet show – for a lot of winter fun! At the end of the week, campers will have a culminating, interactive performance for family and friends.

$285 | Jan 2 – 4 | Wednesday – Friday | 9:30 am – 4:00 pm | Ideal for Grades K – 5
Before care starts at 8:15 am and aftercare is until 5:45 pm on Thursday and Friday only

We believe every child should have access to our programming regardless of financial position. We make every effort to provide scholarships for children and families with demonstrated need.

Inclusion and access are core values at CCT. We believe, and research supports, that access to high-quality theatre arts learning experiences is essential to enhance individual development and improved functioning in school, work, and community settings. We know exposure to the theatre can increase a child’s capacity for empathy, ultimately cultivating a more accepting society.

Annually, 1 in 5 youth at CCT will receive financial assistance to participate in this game-changing programming. If you would like to add your name to our list of THEATRE EDUCATION ACCESS supporters, or if you would like more information on our financial assistance program, contact us today!

Thanks to the generosity of the Susan M. Venturi Fund in memory of James and Roslyn Marks, financial assistance is available for our education programs.
