Those aren't paintings ... they're photos of the Snow White set!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Snow White Tech Week. Magically, the production is coming together perfectly! As you can see, the seven dwafs have been busily decorating their cottage. We think they're aiming for their own DIY show on cable! Judging by what we've seen, we'd have them re-decorate our homes anytime! The special effects in our show are quite brilliant, so be prepared to be amazed at the talents of our tech minions!

Don't forget about our BRUNCH WITH SNOW WHITE this Saturday! All of the details are on our website and tickets are going fast!!!! Where else in Northwest Indiana can you dine with fairy tale characters?!

The box office phones have been ringing off the hook, thanks to early press coverage! Look for more

articles and tidbits in local papers this weekend. We are so proud of this production, we can't wait for the world to see it! articles and tidbits in local papers this weekend. We are so proud of this production, we can't wait for the world to see it!

Snow White opens in 16 days!!! We are all busily preparing. The dwarfs have moved in and made themselves at home with their mugs placed on their beautiful rustic fireplace.
The Queen's minions have been hard at work tricking out the magic mirror and setting castle stones. We now have a guardian watching over us. Look carefully in the trees surrounding the forest.
You will see "Grimm" perched high above the set!

This show promises to be a fun, big scale opening to our 58th season!!! We can't wait to introduce our audiences to the wonderful world of Snow White!

  We are so very excited for Snow White! In just 16 hours and with 6 people, our set is completely constructed and up! Much thanks to Marty "The Mad Scientist" Weisenbacher for his design and execution!
We even had royalty helping us - Snow White and the Prince!

 Now our brilliant scenic artist, Jessie Howe, will take over.  Be on the lookout for a dank, musty, and cold castle, an enchanted and sometimes dark forest, and a lovely warm inviting cottage!
We've never been part of a show where the set has been up in 2 days time! There is definitely some real fairy tale magic afoot down at Chicago Street Theatre.
Stay tuned to our blog for magic spells, trickery, heroes, and humor!
