Tickets are now on sale for “The Great Snipe Hunt,” an outdoor roving theater performance amid Cantigny Park’s beautiful gardens.

Two performances, at 11 am and 1 pm, will take place on both Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1. The event is highly recommended for families with children ages 5 and older.

Presented by the cast and crew of Lake Forest-based Citadel Theatre Company, “The Great Snipe Hunt” is about an adventurous girl who goes on a quest in the Wild Woods and meets a ragged band of fantastic creatures inspired by folklore and tall tales. It’s a light-hearted story delivered by professional actors who will move about the grounds, performing in different settings.

“The Great Snipe Hunt” is produced by Heather Meyers with original adaptation by MEH Lewis.

Tickets are $10 per person and may be purchased in advance at the Cantigny Park Gift Shop or parking booth.  In addition, through June 25, tickets may be ordered online at Cantigny.org or by phone at 630.260.8162.  A limited number of tickets are expected to be available on the day of performance.  Parking is free for ticketholders.

Seating for the moving performance is on the lawn, so spectators are encouraged to bring blankets or lightweight portable chairs.  Water bottles also are recommended.

Cantigny Park is open every day this summer from 7 am to dusk.  A complete schedule of concerts, workshops and special events is posted online at Cantigny.org.
