A few of my friends are gearing up for their upcoming season at the Rascal Children’s Theatre, housed at The Side Project in Rogers Park. Their new show opens late next month — suitable for all ages!
Trust me: I saw their production of The Red Hood, and it had more LMP (Laughs Per Minute) than most fancy, big-budget, adult-oriented productions.
I don’t think this show is a comedy, but I’m certain it will be wonderful, as the people behind it are wicked awesome.
JUDITH LYNN: A STORY OF THE SEA kicks off Rascal Children’s Theater’s 2009/2010 season. This production, adapted from a short story by Annie Hamilton Donnell, was adapted by Rascal founder Dan Foss and is being directed by Elizabeth Hope Morgan, with stage management by Hope Reynolds.
At the turn of the century, young Judith Lynn helps support her family by working as a lobster fisher girl. Out in her boat on the big wide sea, she dreams of finding a way to help her younger sister walk again. When an idea strikes, Judith Lynn is whisked on the adventure of a lifetime, and learns the value of family and friends. This production utilizes music and movement to tell this uplifting tale
Performances are October 24, October 31, and November 7 at 1:00 p.m. The show runs approximately 45 minutes and is suitable for all ages. The Side Project is located at 1439 W. Jarvis Avenue in Rogers Park (and easily accessible by CTA)
Tickets are available either through Brown Paper Tickets or by calling The Side Project’s box office at (773) 973-2150.
