Catch Wake Up, Brother Bear! at Chicago Children’s Theater before the bears go back into hibernation
by Angela Gagnon
The Chicago Children’s Theater presentation of Wake Up, Brother Bear! Is a delightful, interactive play that will take you, and your little ones, on a magical journey through the four seasons. Brother and Sister Bear go on enchanting adventures through a year of discovery.
Featuring live music, familiar songs, captivating sound effects and several heartwarming scenes, Wake Up, Brother Bear! will ignite your senses in a charming and intimate setting. You’ll observe a melting waterfall in the springtime, dance with butterflies and lightening bugs in the summer, cast a fishing line into the water on a chilly autumn day and ice skate on a frozen pond in winter.
From amusing nature encounters to energizing, heart-pumping activity, you’ll enjoy every detail of this sensory-rich storytelling experience. Even the youngest theatergoers will delight in being part of the show, as audience participation is beautifully woven into the performance and thoughtfully encouraged. Performances are Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. until March 1. The show is geared toward ages 0-6 with a run time of about 45 minutes. Chicago Children’s Theater is at 100 S. Racine Avenue in the West Loop. There is free onsite parking in the lot adjacent to the theater. For more information, visit www.chicagochildrenstheater.org or call 312-374-8835.
