Every child needs a special friend, so when Lisa’s mom refuses to buy the teddy bear Corduroy (who is missing a button), Corduroy begins a daring quest through the after-hours department store. Corduroy ignites children’s imaginations while teaching important lessons, so it’s no surprise the National Education Association named the book one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children.” This heartwarming adaptation is chock full of smiles and laughter for the whole family.


Emerald City Theatre’s beloved production of Corduroy returns to Chicago just in time for the holidays! In this sweet adaptation of Don Freeman’s classic book, a small bear’s quest for a missing button leads to the friendship of a lifetime. After the lights are dimmed and the doors locked, the department store comes to life with circus elements and physical comedy. It’s up to Corduroy to outsmart the Night Watchman as he waits for his new pal Lisa to return with her mother. Along with exciting scenes of clowning and mischief, the story teaches the importance of empathy and unconditional love. Tailored for young imaginations, this playful adventure will delight ages three and up!

Show is recommended for ages 3 and older.
