"Urbs in Horto" meaning "City in a Garden" is the latin motto of the great city of Chicago, Illinois. But in the summer of 2019, that garden was invaded by a large reptile spotted lurking in one of the windy city's glorious public park features: The Humboldt Park Lagoon. Now the city with big shoulders, the second city, the whole smelly onion, is in crisis. Based on a true story about an alligator (dubbed Chance the Snapper) that brought a major metropolitan area to its knees, this fun and touching musical follows park officials, corrupt politicians, city flag obsessed Chicagoans, anxious herpetologists, and one plucky young alligator in peril as they work together to find the meaning of allyship, friendship, community, and home.
