"I am Don Quixote; the man of La Mancha," is the refrain I recall from the musical of the same name back when my high school performed it in the 1980s. That was the all-singing all-dancing version. This week I'm headed to see the all-dancing version performed by the Royal Ballet, accompanied by live music performed by Chicago Sinfonietta at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. My husband and I will be guests of the Auditorium Theatre.

Performance June 18, 19 and 20 at 7:30 PM with a 2PM matinee of the 21st. Tickets begin at $32.

On Saturday, June 20, there will be a family-friendly matinee. How family-friendly? Well, for each adult ticket you buy, you'll receive a child's ticket for 50% off using code FAMLY. Child, being a person age 17 or under.

Even better, with tickets to the June 20 matinee, your family members can participate in a movement workshop with a former dancer from the Royal Ballet, David Pickering. He currently works as their Learning and Participation Manager. The workshop runs from 12:30 - 1:30 and is free with June 20 matinee tickets. How cool is that?! Click for details.

For tickets, call 800-982-ARTS (2787) or go to the Auditorium Theatre website.
