This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 25-07-2012 17-08-2012 15 Theatreworks USA Presents 'Skippyjon Jones' Theatreworks USA, the nation's leading nonprofit professional theater for young audiences, presents the Off-Broadway premiere of the new children's musical "Skippyjon Jones," based on the popular picture book series of the same name by Judy Schachner. It is the featured production of the organization's 24th Annual Free Summer Theatre Program. Skippyjon Jones wants to be the best Chihuahua ever. The problem? He's actually a Siamese cat. But before you can say "holy guacamole," Skippyjon's wild imagination transforms him into El Skippito Friskito, the greatest sword fighter in Mexico. Launched in 1989, the mission of Theatreworks USA's Free Summer Theatre Program is to provide New York City youth with their own theater tradition that not only entertains, but also educates and fosters positive value and an appreciation for theater. More than 15,000 free tickets will be distributed to "Skippyjon Jones" this summer. Tickets are free and are available on a first-come, first-served basis in person at the Lucille Lortel Theatre Box Office on the day of the performance. Tickets for each day's performances will be distributed beginning one hour prior to the first performance of the day. There is a limit of four tickets per adult per day. "Skippyjon Jones" is a 60-minute, one-act musical recommended for children ages 4 and up. Schedule exceptions: There are no 1pm performances July 17-20, no 10:30am performance on July 25, and no 4:30pm performance on Aug. 5. There are added 6pm performances on Aug. 2 and Aug. 16.
