About Chicago Kids Company
Chicago Kids Company has been proudly introducing children to the magic of live theater for 29 years!
Founded in 1992 as a non-profit theater company, Chicago Kids Company has produced 53 original musicals based on fairy tales and children’s stories. The two co-founders of CKC (Paige Coffman and Jesus Perez) still run the show! Together they write, direct, compose, design, and create their signature colorful entertaining productions. This award-winning duo has written and produced every single CKC show for the past 29 years.
Chicago Kids Company productions feature professional actors, sing-along songs, brightly colored costumes and sets, up-to-date references, and are geared for children ages 2 to 10 and their families. Now in its 29th season, Chicago Kids Company is thrilled to continue to share the joy of theatre!
