"It's Showtime Theatre of Huntley is so excited to give life to this thrilling entertainment spectacular that will delight children and adults alike," says the production's Executive Producer Rikki Lee Travolta, who founded the theater company with the park district in 2017. "We will take you through a full range of positive emotions and have you leaving the show with a smile on your face and music in your heart."
It features a creative staff of director Aaron Gomez, music director Charlie Sommers, choreographer Shannon Lee Day, producer Jeff Schiewe, stage manager Kathie Comella, and park district liaison Stephanie Peters.

"Magical Musicals and Pixie Dust fulfills that mission -- it's great entertainment for the whole family at prices less than what you'd pay at any other theater company of this high quality."
