CHICAGO | Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will be taking to the theatrical stage.

Urlacher will appear in Friday evening's production of "A Christmas Carol" at downtown Chicago's Goodman Theatre. He will make the cameo along with 19-year-old Kenneth Schumacher. Schumacher suffers from a heart condition and their appearance is thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Schumacher is a freshman theater major at Northern Illinois University.

Urlacher and Schumacher will wear costumes tailored especially for them. In the past few years, Chicago sports stars Scottie Pippen and Robin Ventura also have appeared in "A Christmas Carol" through Make-A-Wish Foundation.
