trolleySpreading birthday cheer, the “125TH Birthday Trolley,” generously provided by Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Co., will travel throughout the City on the morning of December 9. Passengers, including Board Chairman Mel Katten and Executive Director Brett Batterson, members from the “Too Hot to Handel” Chorus, Auditorium Theatre staff and board members and other surprise guests, will distribute special birthday treats to commuters in various locations including Union Station, Daley Plaza, State and Lake and Pioneer Court. As a special 125th birthday gift to Chicagoans, 125 pairs of tickets to one of the Auditorium’s upcoming performances in its 125TH Anniversary Season will be given away throughout the morning.

Chicagoans can also participate in “Auditorium Theatre Day” by tweeting in a Birthday wish to the Auditorium using #AudDay, or tag Auditorium Theatre in a photo/message on Facebook or Instagram (@AuditoriumTheatre). Participants will automatically be entered-to-win a pair of premium tickets to an Auditorium Theatre show of their choice!

In addition, the Auditorium Theatre’s Preferred Restaurant Partners join the fun with these special Birthday specials throughout the day:

Trattoria No. 10 (10 N Dearborn) will give away gift cards, and Lockwood (17 E Monroe) will hand out 15% off coupons on the Birthday Trolley. Brasserie by LM (800 S Michigan) offers an “All You Can Eat” Mussel Special ($15/person) while Tesori (65 E Adams) will offer the “Sparkling Orchard” specialty cocktail for $12 in honor of the theatre’s 125TH Birthday.
