Chicago-area MomImpact members are invited to the premiere of Dot & Ziggy, Chicago’s first Baby and Toddler Theatre production!
A tradition in Europe and Australia, this type of interactive theater for children as 6 months to 4 years is just taking hold in the US. In keeping with their goal to make theatre accessible to Chicago youth and their families, Chicago Children’s Theatre is pleased to present this co-production with Seattle Children’s Theatre.
In this engaging story about a ladybug and a skunk, two very different creatures realize they actually have quite a bit in common. Young audience members and their parents are encouraged to sit together on the floor while two actors, a musician and puppets lead the audience on a stimulating interactive journey exploring color, size and distance. And of course, given the nature of the audience, sitting is optional.
After the show, parents and tots are welcome to stay for story time, which boasts a delightful oversized book that reinforces the Dot & Ziggy experience.
Join us at the Victory Gardens Biograph Theater, conveniently located in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood

Founded in 2005, Chicago Children’s Theatre already has valuable experience reaching out to a different yet similarly under-served youth audience – children on the autism spectrum – through the creation and continued success of its Red Kite Project. Much like Red Kite,Dot & Ziggy reinvents the use of non-traditional theatrical techniques to create a fully immersive storytelling experience for a brand new audience – babies and toddlers.
