let's highlight our canine cast member, CODY as a Sheep
and share some of the visitors to last year's show.
Bring your pet to mingle in the lobby and to enjoy the show!
Jazz arrangements of traditional Christmas carols along with original compositions tell the story of Mary, Jesus, Joseph, the Angels, the Shepherds, and the three Wise Men in a staged production. Filled with a sense of grace and humor, the cast will include a tap dancing king, a Latin percussion king and a trumpet king, as well as vocal soloists, a vocal jazz quartet, choir and eight piece jazz band.
A free-will offering will benefit Chicago Canine Rescue.
