Happy Holidays - Babes Style! Last FREE Reading This Sunday at 1pm and MORE

Here's the latest news from our friends over at Babes With Blades

Like Hunger Games and women as protagonists who don't just lay around like the Disney coma princesses, waiting to be rescued?   Come check out some real life women who kick booty with sword fights & stage combat.  

Here at ChiIL Live Shows, Babes With Blades have been favorites of ours for years.   Their shows are aimed at adults, but my tweens adore them, too!

There's just one more reading left...
