These are high-budget,technically fantastic shows with conservatory student actors, so the production values are usually much higher than you would see for other kids' shows with much higher ticket prices and the acting is good. Age range appropriate of each show is listed. Shows are in beautifully-appointed historic 1911 theatre, so you get a big theatre experience, too. Chicago Playworks is the oldest childrens' theatre in Chicago. We love seeing their shows.
