March 7 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. March 8 at 1:30 p.m. $10-$16. This Tony nominated musical remains true to the spirit of the original stories as it follows two great friends, the cheerful Frog and the rather grumpy Toad through 4 fun-filled seasons. Accompanied by a score that bubbles with melody wit, it's jazzy upbeat sound is a perfect match for the inhabitants of this world.
$18, $15 students and seniors. Introducing original works by Ms. Woods and Ms. Brand featuring Kelly Brand, piano, Kelly Sills, bass and Juli Wood, saxes. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1247920.
A group of students from Oak Park and River Forest High School looking to get more people involved in theater are gearing up for their first show next week — a comedy they wrote, acted and directed themselves.
If you've seen any TV commercials from the 1980s or early 90s, you've probably heard the voice of Cindy Fee. She was the voice behind the Hoover vacuum cleaner ("Nobody does it like you"). She told consumers to "get on your Pontiac and ride."
I continue urging people to "get on over to Open Door" to check out what's happening at this newest of local theater spaces, located on Ridgeland just south of Harrison in Oak Park. That was even before Open Door Repertory Company's current production, which is so joyful and dynamic you'd better act quickly.
