Playtime Stories is an engaging combination of children’s stories and live performance. Young children will have the unique opportunity to see their favorite books brought to life onstage. Members of our apprentice company and former Youth Acting Workshop students will create a dynamic weekly series of events that are both fun and interactive. Following the performances, all audience members will be invited to join the Playtime Stories Company with interactive workshops relating to the story. Turn off your TV and bring the kids to a wonderful morning of theatre! For ages 3 and up.
