Children’s events generously supported by Workscapes
Float, glide and soar to this multisensory story experience developed specifically for very young audiences (0-6 years of age) and their grown-ups! Join a pig named Avery and his friends on the farm as they explore what it means to fly through elements of play, discovery, whimsical movement and a few surprises along the way!
What to Expect at a Theatre for the Very Young Show:
Exciting Interaction! Be prepared to talk to the actors, join in song and dance, and touch or use various objects! There are intentionally no seats for the children to sit in because we want them to stand, move and engage with the actors as the show unfolds! Seats will be available for adults.
A Feast for the Senses! Colorful props to see and touch. Familiar melodies or new sounds to hear. And possibly even something interesting to smell. The children will be guided and encouraged to explore the theatre experience with their senses.
Theatre that Speaks the Language of Little Ones! You wouldn’t expect a toddler to be able to follow a story, so we don’t either! Theatre for the Very Young focuses on creating experiences that reflect how toddlers and munchkins take in the world around them – moment-by-moment!
