Courtyard - Shakespeare Theatre - Blog

I believe that it's never too early to introduce children to the joy of live music, dance and theatre. Thankfully, many Chicago theaters now offer a variety of shows that allow even toddlers to experience live performance in a supportive, educational, and extremely family-friendly environment.

Here's a chance to enjoy the world-class Chicago Chamber Musicians with your preschooler. Leave It to Ludwig, presented at the charming Chicago Shakespeare Courtyard Theater, the cultural gem of Navy Pier. The theater itself will give kids a taste of what it was like to attend a show long ago at the Globe. 

In Leave It to Ludwig, the musical genius Ludwig van Beethoven comes back to life to help a young pianist master his greatest works. Composer Bruce Adolphe will portray Beethoven, and Northwestern University Associate Professor of Piano James F. Giles will play the young pianist. 

The one-hour concert is geared towards children ages 4 and up. Afterwards, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy Navy Pier: Play and learn at the Chicago Children's Museum,  build your own teddy bear, or travel to another land with IMAX
