The holidays are here and the “Family Performance Series,” Artists’ Exchange’s newest family-friendly programming, is the perfect activity to entertain all of your family members for little to no cost. Series performances began in September and will run through May 2016, with shows on Saturday mornings from 11:00am-12:00pm at Theatre 82 & Café, located at 82 Rolfe Square in Cranston. Admission is “Pay What You Can” with a suggested donation of $5.00 per person.
Each Saturday is unique and guaranteed to engage and entertain your toddler and teen, your spouse and grandparent, and everyone in between. Upcoming performances feature a line-up of theater professionals with experience entertaining families, youth, and children in puppetry, music, interactive storytelling, improvisational theater, dance, and more.
“Laugh Out Loud” is every second Saturday of the month and “Big Day” is the last Saturday of the month. Join “The Club” in “Laugh Out Loud” and be a member who follows the Club Rules: “Have Fun,” “Be You,” “Speak Your Mind,” “Play Games,” and “Dream Big.” Act out stories, read and sing, be silly, and laugh with your new friends Lauren, Davey, Jessie, and Tommy. In “Big Day,” you will celebrate daily holidays – ranging from favorites to rare to bizarre but incredibly fun – with Dr. Phineas P.T. Pretorius, festival presenter extraordinaire, and his sidekick, Larry, with sketches, stories, songs, and funny!
Puppets and storytellers will delight you on the remaining dates with renowned performers including: the BIG NAZO Mini-Creature Show (November 21st, January 6th, and April 2nd), Marc Kohler, Sparky’s Puppets, and Marc Levitt.
