The Emperor's New Clothes Giveaway

I love Chicago and anything fun to do with the kids in Chicago is awesome, in my book. If you are looking for something a little different then taking the kids to the beach or the playground , look no further! We all know how hard it is to keep the kids entertained during the summertime. Normally, by about the end of June, I am completely out of ideas. What's even harder is to find affordable entertainment, especially if it also provides a little education and culture for the girls. I know you all know exactly what I am talking about. With this in mind, The Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST)  has graciously invited my family to a performance of the new musical based on,Hans Christian Andersen's The Emperor's New Clothes. We are thrilled about attending a performance next month. The Chicago Shakespeare Theater is located at Navy Pier, so we plan on making a family day of it.I think it would also make a great play date excursion.The greater news is that CST is also generously providing a Free Family four pack set of tickets to be given away to one of my lucky readers to the performance of their choice.*

I have read that  The Emperor's New Clothes is high energy,chalked full of clever costumes and valuable lessons.If you'd like more information on the story of the Emperor's New Clothes please click here. Sounds to me, like a great production for the whole family to enjoy. I can't wait to see it for myself.

Tickets are $18–$23 or as low as $12 per child for parties of 10 or more. Tickets to The Emperor's New Clothes would make a great family day event and CST Patrons save 40% on parking at Navy Pier as well!
