Chicago-area families, you are cordially invited to dress-up and enjoy a spot of hot cocoa with Chicago Children’s Theatre and our friends Jeremy Fisher, Simpkin the Cat and Peter Rabbit.
Now a popular annual tradition, The Beatrix Potter Holiday Tea Party is the perfect way to kick off your family’s holiday festivities. Three adorable Beatrix Potter favorite tales are unspooled in this mesmerizing, interactive trunk and puppet show, complete with live music. Then, audience members are invited on stage to pull the levers and turn the same cranks that produced such whimsical images of surprise and delight. After photos with the cast, families are whisked to a Victorian-style dining hall, which is adorned with beautiful holiday decor and open tables set with cookies and warm cocoa.
