- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
When a lost tourist stumbles into the back room of an Illinois history museum, she discovers that there's a story behind even the smallest of artifacts. Anybody's Story: 200 Years of Illinoisans and Their Stuff is a series of vignettes inspired by the objects in the "Bicentennial & Beyond" exhibit at the Illinois State Museum - watching the play will literally be like watching these objects' stories come to life.
Friday, July 6 and Saturday, July 7 at 7:30 pm in historic Edwards Place, 700 North 4th St.
Sunday, July 8 at 2 pm at the Illinois State Museum, 502 S. Spring St.
