Giveaway: The Adventures of Pinocchio

The Chicago Shakespeare Theater transformed its Courtyard Theater into a larger-than-life, European marionette stage to present The Adventures of Pinocchio to kids of all ages! Based on Carlo Collodi's classic tale, the production highlights the bond between parents and children and the importance of an unselfish heart.

It runs until August 28, 2011, with showtimes in the mornings and afternoons. The approximate running time is 75 minutes with no intermission.

The theater has put together some really fun activities to do with your kids before and after you see the production. Check them out here.

There is also a special opportunity to meet Pinocchio and Geppetto at Chicago Children's Museum on Navy Pier Thursday, August 11 at 6pm (free with museum admission).

The Chicago Shakespeare Theater has offered everyone the change to win 4 tickets to The Adventures of Pinocchio performance of your choice!
