"The Elephant and the Whale" (Chicago Children's Theatre): Big Time Adorable!

Chicago Children’s Theatre, in conjunction with Redmoon Theatre, presents the world premiere of The Elephant and the Whale.

Kasey Foster, David Catlin, Becky Poole and Kurt Brocker star in the world premiere of "The Elephant and the Whale", produced by Chicago Children's Theatre and Redmoon Theatre, written by Seth Bockley and Kevin O'Donnell.
