It’s time to break out your bagpipe, put on your kilt, and get ready to celebrate everything Scottish at the 29th Annual Scottish Festival and Highland Games at Hamilton Lakes in Itasca from Friday, June 19 through Saturday, June 20. The event, the largest of its kind in the Midwest, promises to be exciting featuring activities for the whole family ranging from Heavy Athletics competitions (including the legendary challenge the Caber Toss), a Highland Dance competition, a Dogs of Scotland exhibit, a British car show, live Celtic Music, a Shortbread contest, pipe band music, a Knobbly Knees contest, and more.
Chicago Tap Theatre continues its circus odyssey that began this spring with the behind-the-scenes inspired TightWire, a live performance combining traditional circus arts with tap dance. Audiences will be brought to the forefront of the circus and experience tap dance as never before. Chicago Tap Theatre, working with circus professionals, has created a thrilling evening of danger and rhythm incorporating stilt walkers and a rhythmic gymnast. Fans of TightWire will enjoy the return of the production’s characters and, perhaps, even find resolution that impacts the heightened action in Circo Tap’s finale.
This is a one-night-only event on June 27 at 8:00 pm at the Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 North Southport Avenue in Chicago.
