So, school’s out for a couple weeks. Kids are now roaming around the house. You want to do something fun with them, but don’t know what you should do. Well, I have a suggestion! Second City has two shows running, one before Christmas, and one after. Both shows play at noon, so it’s a nice way to break up the day. For more information, see the press release below:
From Press Release:
The Second City comedy is excited to announce special family programming just in time for the December break. From December 21st to the 30th, the Second City will present two hilarious family musicals: Big Bad Wolf (vs. Lord Underwearface von Schtinker) and the holiday-themed What the Elf!?!.
What the Elf?!? skewers all the traditions of the holiday season; from flying reindeer to last-minute shopping, nothing is off limits in this silly and satirical musical about a lost tin soldier and his quest to find Santa’s sleigh.
Back by popular demand, Big Bad Wolf (vs. Lord Underwearface von Schtinker) is a hilarious musical romp that takes a new look at a children’s classic. Framed for heinous crimes by the evil von Schtinker, our unlikely hero, Big Bad Wolf, must enlist the help of his fairy tale friends to prove that things aren’t always as they seem.
Both shows feature goofy chase scenes, sing-alongs, and some true lessons in friendship. The interactive nature of the shows is sure to dazzle children, yet the scripts are studded with enough sly jokes to keep parents chuckling too. The shows are geared to children between the ages of 5-10 years and run approximately 40 minutes, followed by an improv show that will invite the audience to join in the fun.
Lunch items, snacks and full bar service are available in the theatre during the show; our family-friendly menu and fun staff make The Second City a great place to bring the whole clan!
