Catch a Theater Troupe: Hogwash

Get ready for a fairytale like no other. You and your kiddos will be transported to a world of your choosing at this entirely improvised theater show. At Hogwash, the spectators are the architects of their experience when they pick out costumes and the setting for the tale. This impressive troop of actors and musicians also performs completely improvised songs during the show. Kids get to throw in plot twists, help the actors and even become the characters.

Held every Saturday, 10:30 a.m. Admission is free (donations are accepted). Bughouse Theater
, 2054 W. Irving Park Rd., 
Lakeview. For more info, go to hogwashkids.com.
