Once Upon A Castle

Once Upon A Castle

January 25 -May 14
Chicago Children’s Museum provides the set, props, and costumes – kids provide the story

Read More

This isn’t like the castles you’ve seen before. It’s a space where kids can create their own kingdom and:
– Invent their own fairytale as they prepare a feast in the kitchen or stand guard at the dungeon
– Play whatever role feels right as they cast a wizard’s spell or search for the mystery dragon
– Stay active and energized (even in winter) as they climb the tower or charge the castle door
The possibilities are endless.

The Book of Joseph

The Book of Joseph

January 29 – March 5
By Karen Hartman
Based on the life of Joseph A. Hollander and his family
Directed by Barbara Gaines

Read More

Every family has its secrets. Richard Hollander’s remained in an unopened suitcase for fifteen years after the death of his parents. Inside, he found a collection of Swastika-stamped letters written during World War II by a family he never knew—his late father Joseph’s mother, three sisters, their husbands and children. Unable to convince the family to leave Poland, Joseph escaped to the United States where he fought to save his family from annihilation at the hands of the Nazis, and to avoid deportation and death himself. Richard collected his family’s letters in his book, Every Day Lasts A Year, the inspiration for this frequently chilling, often humorous, and always deeply moving drama, staged by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines.

Love’s Labor’s Lost

Love’s Labor’s Lost

February 7 – March 26
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Marti Maraden

Read More

King Ferdinand of Navarre’s “no fun” edict includes scholarly endeavors, quiet contemplation and complete commitment to chastity for three entire years. His closest courtiers reluctantly sign on. But this is a comedy and it doesn’t take long for everyone to figure out that the whole thing is a bad idea and rules are meant to be broken—especially when the French Princess and her beautiful entourage arrive on the scene. The young men’s studies soon give way to secret letters and amorous vows as the women set out to teach the men a thing or two about love.

February 25 – March 25
By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Marti Lyons

Verona burns under summer’s heat—and the hatred of two families. The Prince decrees: if Montague or Capulet again disrupts the peace, lives will answer to the law. Violence stains Verona’s streets. Against this horror, Shakespeare sets Romeo and Juliet, a tale of true love found—and tragically lost—within an endless cycle of hate. This 75-minute adaptation, told in Shakespeare’s own words, speaks to today’s youth about their own lives. After the performance, audiences are welcome to join the cast for a post-show discussion.

Asana Flow + Pranayama

James draws upon the variety of modalities he has studied over the past 20 years of practicing yoga. His teachers have instilled in him the sacredness of the practice. He has been taught to uphold the traditional philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga through the conditioning of mind and body. He believes the use of physical postures, breathing and concentration practices in addition to cleansing techniques, help us to cultivate the balanced state we need to pursue our spiritual endeavors. He emphasizes mindfulness and exploration in a light-hearted way throughout class. His classes incorporate breath-enhanced movement to elicit the stabilization and cultivation of our vital life force, prana. Static and more complex postures are presented to encourage strength and endurance of body and mind. Variations and modifications are offered to assist everyone in finding an appropriate boundary with which they can work with safely and effectively. Time for breathing techniques and stillness is integrated to enhance and observe the effect so the more gross practices. This can lead to a more complete and fulfilling experience for the student.

This event is part of Resolution Revolution, a series of free yoga and group fitness classes at Navy Pier. See the full schedule at navypier.com/fitness.

Instructor: James Tennant, Tejas Yoga

James was exposed to yoga in 1996 through his first spiritual mentor Jeri Lucas, who continues to inspire him today. With a growing love for the practice, James participated in the 2001 Ana Forest teacher training. In 2003 he traveled to Kiev, Ukraine for a four-month intensive training in Universal Freestyle Yoga with Andrey Lappa. After a couple years of teaching and studying in Chicago, he took an 8-month sabbatical to study with the beloved Dharma Mittra in New York, NY. His interest in Ayurveda then took him to Albuquerque, NM. There he studied Ayurvedic Medicine at the Ayurvedic Institute with the renowned Dr. Vasant Lad, M.A. Sc. James is also an ordained reverend through Ron Brown Grayson, PhD in Universal Studies, co-founder of Source Legacy.

The Second City. The Windy City. The City of Big Shoulders. Whatever the name or title, Chicago is much more than a headline or destination.

With all this Chicago spirit and love, you have to be asking, “What does this have to do with the show?” Well, in honor of this city in a garden, the 2017 show theme will be applauding all that is wonderful about Chicago’s neighborhoods, cultural institutions and green scene. (Which happens to be a lot!) From urban design innovations to cutting-edge food fusions to leaner and greener living, Chicago is where ideas are born and built.

And that is a reason to celebrate!

The nine-day event will feature 20+ life-sized gardens that you can walk through, daily seminars, DIY workshops and a bustling marketplace. Perfect for families, gardening veterans and newbies, the 2017 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will be an event filled with hands-on experiences and non-stop fun. So join us this March as we inspire, motivate and educate visitors of all ages with “Chicago’s Blooming.”

The Oscar-winning romantic comedy about Shakespeare and his Chamberlain’s Men returns to its rightful home—the stage. Imagine a young playwright on the make struggling to write his new tragic love story, “Romeo and Ethel, The Pirate’s Daughter.” The title just doesn’t have the right ring—and young Will Shakespeare knows it. He’s got writer’s block and must do something quickly. Will needs a muse, and he finds one in Viola, a vivacious beauty who will do anything—even disguise herself as a man—to audition for the stage where no women are permitted to perform.
