We can't wait to see the Chicago Children's Theatre's adaptation of Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved bedtime tale, Goodnight Moon. Both of my children have this book memorized; I must have read it to both hundreds of times. I have a feeling that my daughter, age 2, is going to go berserk when she sees Bunny's room come alive before her eyes. The show also promises catchy songs performed by live musicians, delightful choreography and a colorful set that pays homage to Clement Hurd’s vivid book illustrations. For more info on the show, head over to the Chicago Children's Theatre site.
I am happy to host a giveaway for 4 tickets to the Sunday, 11/13, 3 pm performance of Goodnight Moon. To enter, simply leave a comment below answering the question "What's your child's current fave book?" Please be sure to leave your email address within the comment, so I can contact you if you're a winner. I will randomly draw a winner on Friday after noon, and I'll contact you by email and post your name here on the blog. Please note that the date and the time of the show is non-transferable.
P.S.: Chicago Children's Theatre is excited to partner with Scholastic Books and The Pajama Program, a non-profit organization which provides new, warm pajamas and new books to children in need in Chicago and around the world. Throughout the run of Goodnight Moon The Musical, Chicago Children's Theatre will post a Pajama Drive donation bin in the Biograph lobby during every performance. For every pair of new pajamas donated during the run of Goodnight Moon, Scholastic Books will donate an equal number of early learning books for disadvantaged youth. So please, wear your pajamas and bring a pair of pajamas with you to donate!
