“Not to be missed! This warm, wonderful summer treat is highly polished & delightful”

–Chicago Theatre Review

Introduce young audiences to the wonder of live theater and the power of imagination! Embark on a heartwarming adventure with the beloved bear whose button has gone missing, and he can’t go home with kindhearted Lisa without it. Follow Corduroy’s delightfully destructive journey through the department store as he searches high and low—up escalators, and through teetering store displays. This 60-minute tale of friendship and belonging had its world premiere at the Tony Award-winning Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis in 2018. Now, esteemed Chicago director Amber Mak returns after last summer’s hit production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, bringing her wealth of experience directing shows for young audiences.

Keep the fun going →
