Blair Thomas’ The Selfish Giant

November 5, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Join Blair Thomas and Co. as they present The Selfish Giant. Two Chicago theater icons, Blair Thomas and singer-songwriter Michael Smith collaborate on this staging of an Oscar Wilde classic. Running time 45 minutes. Original puppets and music tell the story of a grumpy old giant who forbids the children in his village from playing in his beautiful garden. After the children are locked out, the trees and flowers refuse to grow and the garden plunges into an eternal winter. Then one morning, the children sneak back into the garden, bringing with them the joyous rebirth of spring.

Join us for two free performances at 11am and 1pm here at the Conservatory on Sunday, November 5.  No reservations necessary.  These performances are brought to you by the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival and the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks.  Learn more.
