Get to Know…Kerry Hahn of City Kid Theatre Company
1. What sets your business apart?
City Kid Theatre Company is unique because we concentrate on the young
performer by offering a safe and creative atmosphere that is very conducive to
learning as well as feeling “right at home.” Our students range from three
years old to twelve. They are introduced to musical theatre, comedy and
improv by learning memorization skills, lyrics and choreography. Our intimate
stage lets the audience enjoy a city-like “storefront theatre” in town while
experiencing often magical performances by the children.
2. Why Glenview?
The company is named “City Kid” due to the fact that I was born and raised on
the north side of Chicago, where I fell in love with theatre when I first set foot
on stage at age five. I later moved to Glenview with my husband, Danny, who
is a Glenview native. We have lived here for 30 years and raised our family of
three here. We are very proud to be part of this great community.
3. You might be surprised to know…
City Kid Theatre throws the most amazing parties at night for grown ups. We
offer fun-filled karaoke or events that showcase an entertainer. We have a
variety of events for all ages and look forward to many more in the New Year!
4. What’s your favorite quote?
“Some say as we grow up, we become different people, at different ages…but I
don’t believe this. I think we remain the same throughout, merely passing in
these years from one room to another…but always in the same house. If we
unlock the rooms of the past, we can look inside and see ourselves becoming
who we are.” – M. Barrie, author of “Peter Pan”.
