Scottie Pippen has starred in the spotlight and on the big stage in the past, and he'll do so again on Dec. 14.
But it won't be on the basketball court.
Pippen will join 7-year-old La'Ren Kimble, a beneficiary of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, in walk-on roles in A Christmas Carol at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago.
This will be the sixth year that the Goodman Theatre and Make-A-Wish Illinois have teamed up to give back something special to young children battling life-threatening illnesses.
“I’m excited to step on a different stage of sorts and look forward to being part of what has been a Chicago holiday tradition for so many years,” said Scottie Pippen, Special Advisor to the President and C.O.O. of the Chicago Bulls. “But what’s most important for me is being able to work alongside my co-star, La’Ren, and Make-A-Wish Illinois. I hear La’Ren is an aspiring actress and I’ll do my best to make her and the cast of A Christmas Carol proud.”
