Will Hershel of Ostropool outsmart the goblins who haunt the old synagogue so that villagers can celebrate Hanukkah? In this virtual adaptation of the Caldecott Honor-winning book, the story comes to life with music and a little bit of magic for families of all ages to sing along and enjoy.

As part of our efforts to support neighboring organizations in the greater Chicago community, Strawdog theatre will share part of the proceeds from this production with The Jewish Council of Urban Affairs.

Time: 1:00pm and 4:00pm

Tickets are $25-$30

Additional Interactive Perks for $30 ticket holders:

- You will be given access to pre-show and post-show interaction time with the performers!
- You get opportunities to participate in the show, learn dance moves and enjoy a special sing along of the Latke song!
- A webcam will be necessary if you get selected to show off your coloring book or be on camera.
