Balancing family fun time and expenses over the holiday season can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. So take A Dance Adventure the whole family can enjoy.

The beloved children's book character “Harold,” his purple crayon and all his adventures will grace the Harris Theater stage in Chicago's Millennium Park on December 3 & 4 at 2 p.m.  Tickets start at just $15.

A co-presentation by the Harris Theater and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, this interactive, 1-hour family program featuring music by Chicago’s Andrew Bird gives families the opportunity to help Harold create his next adventure through their own exploration of movement.
