Kids Summer Theater

Select Dates, June 3–August 26

Kids Summer Theater at Lincoln Park Zoo debuted with Chicago's Storytown Improv on the zoo's South Lawn

Enjoy family-oriented live theater performances at the zoo all season long! Chicago-based theater companies perform bite-size skits (15–20 minutes in duration) that provide a creative way for children to learn while having fun at the zoo. Storytown Improv uses audience suggestions to create different stories, and enlists kids to help design the setting for the troupe’s actors, artists and musicians. Child’s Play Touring Theatre also uses audience participation but performs scripted plays.

11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m.
South Lawn (south of Park Place Café)
(Rain location: Café at Wild Things rooftop)
For families with children ages 3–9
