Performing every Saturday at Stage 773 in Chicago, Storytown is a happy, hilarious, fully improvised interactive musical children's theater adventure created for - AND BY - kids ages 3-10 and their families!
From the moment your child enters Storytown, they're in on the action - drawing "scenery," suggesting characters, and even getting up on stage, singing and dancing and portraying anything from pandas to pirates!
Providing inclusive, hands on arts education in a fun-filled and encouraging environment, Storytown is more than just a kid's show, it's an imagination experience!
With the help of a big box of costumes, a live piano, an on-the-spot prop artist, and the hilarious talents of our awesome "townies" - Storytown delivers a brand new show every Saturday, completely determined by the input of our young audience.
When the possibilities are endless, no two stories are ever the same - come make magic with us in STORYTOWN!
Storytown teaches cooperative play for kids without putting them on the spot or making them uncomfortable kids can contribute in terms of what makes THEM comfortable. The cast is extremely good at handling children, teaching theatre manners without condescension, and adults can enjoy the very funny show without feeling “talked down” to.

The feel of the show is much like a Pixar movie mashed up with an arts class combined with the Carol Burnett show. You will be laughing at this children's theater show just as much as your kids. The skilled performers captivate a room of 60 + kids hopped up on cake and soda, not a small feat .I highly recommend this to any parent looking to have a good time with their children.

I was worried my 2-year old was too young and we'd have to leave early. Instead we stayed until curtain call.
She loved being invited on stage to color the backdrop. The actors were so caring and kind with the kids - one actress brought her on stage and watched over her while she participated in a scene with
the older kids ; it was really sweet.
