The Greatest Story Never Told

  • Under The Gun Theater 956 West Newport Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

When a narrator walks on stage to discover a blank storybook and no actors waiting backstage to help perform a story...

The ONLY answer to this problem is to bring kids from the audience up on stage and try to make up: 

THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD! 

Kids and professional adult improvisers collaborate to make up a 45-60 minute story together. After the show our writers and artists will transform the original improvised story into a purchasable digital and physical storybook.

WHEN: Saturdays at 11:00am. November 26th - February 4th

WHERE: Under The Gun Theater. 956 W Newport Ave, Chicago 60657

WHAT ELSE: JOIN US EARLY! Doors open at 10:30am where families may enjoy board games, crafts, dress-up clothes, COFFEE, carrots, mini-bagels, groovy music.

* Kids 0-23 months get in FREE

* Show run time is 45-60 minutes

* NO ELEVATOR - Theater is located on 2nd Floor!
