Join us in the magical forest for our first puppet show! – Anacostia Playhouse
Anacostia Playhouse is excited to announce an event for the entire family! We are so happy to welcome Shakespeare For The Young and their puppet production of Midsummer Magic, which tells the fairy story from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare for the Young is a theatrical company of puppeteers and designers dedicated to bringing Shakespeare to young children, ages 2 and up, in order to give them a fun, interactive cultural experience that will encourage language growth, risk-taking creativity, and empathy for others. Three puppeteers use the medium of puppetry in combination with the artists’ voices to present the stories and poetry of Shakespeare. The puppeteers provide a workshop after the performance to help children explore their imaginations.
For more information on the troupe, see www.shakespearefortheyoung.com.
Two performances only! Saturdays, August 6 and 13 at 10:30am. Don’t miss out! Get your tickets today.
