Our Theatre for Kids Productions provides our young aspiring performers the opportunity to wow and learn at the same time. The shows are selected to entertain adults and kids alike. The fully staged musicals have been a staple in our schedule for the last 8 years.
Coming up next:
Mythos – The Might of the Myth, the Power of Puppets is the 50 minute story of a young puppet boy questioning the imperfect world that he has come to know. With the help of his poet father, he embarks on a journey to better understand life through the stories and lessons of famous (and infamous) characters from Ancient Greek mythology. More importantly, he begins to discover what we can all do make our world a better place.
The visual beauty of MYTHOS lies in the use of puppetry. Every myth is explored through different forms of the art. The show opens with shadow puppetry, folk art and beautifully crafted hand and rod puppets. As it continues, we entertain audiences with fun miniatures, marionettes and Banraku full body style puppets.
