VISIT & explore

Theatre-Hikes® At The Morton Arboretum

Experience the theater on nature's stage. 

Walk along with the action of your favorite literary tales performed live among 1,700 acres of trees and beautiful landscapes. 


Plan Your Experience:

The first Sunday performance of each month will be a low-impact walk (suitable for strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs). This walk will be much shorter than a typical Theatre-Hikes performance. 

Each performance lasts approximately two and one-half hours, so please wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, and bring a chair or blanket, water bottle, and insect repellent.

All performances begin at the Thornhill Shelter (Parking Lot 21).



Join us for the last month of our 2014 Theatre-Hikes at The Morton Arboretum. Enjoy our fall color and crisp Autumn air with a hike to the cemetery and live production of local ghost stories.
