You are invited to free family shows

You (yes YOU!) are invited to public performances for children and families.

Professional performers present utilizing a variety of performance art skills. The stories are not merely told, but flipped and activated with some help from the audience.

What can you expect? Non-stop action, a grown woman squeezing through a tennis racket, audience participation, music, American Sign Language, quick costume changes and witty comedy that will tickle the funny bone. Entertaining for the stroller set to grandparents and all ages in between. Presented before what is rumored to be the world's largest picture book.

Kids come 30 minutes early for a chance to be in the show

Thanks to local libraries and other organizations some performances are free and open to the public. They are marked as such.
