Chicago Shakespeare Theater welcomes The Walk with Little Amal, the internationally celebrated 12‑foot‑tall puppet of a 10‑year‑old girl, as part of her epic 6,000‑mile journey across the United States this fall. Amal will make her first appearance in Chicago at the Theater’s iconic marquee on Navy Pier, proceeding from Lake Michigan toward the city’s skyline, in a free event for all ages on September 28 at 5:30 p.m. Presented in partnership with Navy Pier, the event will feature a performance by Uniting Voices (formerly Chicago Children’s Choir), along with appearances by A.B.L.E. and Chicago Children’s Museum, in collaboration with the Syrian Community Network.
- Before Amal arrives, stop by Chicago Children’s Museum from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. for its puppet-themed Free Family Day
- Amal’s visit to the Pier begins at 5:30 p.m. just outside Chicago Shakespeare Theater, with a traditional welcome by the Syrian Community Network
