Would you love to take your young children to a live show, but you aren’t sure where to begin? The ArtsBridge Family Performance Series provides a fun and accessible way for children and families to experience the performing arts! These high-quality, one-hour performances by national and international touring companies are engaging for the whole family, and feature some of your favorite well-known television shows. Tickets for the winter shows at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre are on sale now at artsbridgega.org.
“Sometimes parents are reluctant to bring their children to the theatre, knowing their children might have a hard time sitting still for a couple of hours,” says Natalie Barrow, Director of Arts Education and Community Outreach, ArtsBridge Foundation. “Our Family Performance Series is the perfect opportunity for parents to introduce children to the joy of live performances since the shows are just one-hour long and mostly shows that their children already know and love. And it’s a great way for kids to start learning, and practicing, theatre etiquette.”
Here’s what’s coming up in the ArtsBridge Family Performance Series:
Odd Squad – Sunday, November 20 at 2:00 pm and 5:30 pm
