Family Fun Series 2023-2024
The American Theatre's commitment to programming for all ages comes to life this season with three exceptional productions. Our Saturday Morning Club performances offer literary classics, sing-a-longs, and puppetry that is sure to entertain and inspire children and adults alike, introducing a new generation to the magic of creative storytelling.
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Celebrate Halloween and witness superstitious schoolmaster Ichabod Crane’s child-friendly, spooky adventures as he encounters the galloping Headless Horseman in this eye-catching adaptation of Washington Irving’s literary classic.
Perhaps the best loved holiday story of all time, this adaptation of Dickens’ classic is particularly suited to children. Watch Mr. Scrooge have a change of heart from stone to gold as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas. All the joy, sentiment and meaning are here, without being too scary for young audiences.
Adapted by Steve Perigard, Music and Lyrics by Paul Deiss.
Two tales rolled into one! This show combines two well-loved, classic tales to create an original, fun-filled romp through fairy tales. Join Little Red as she pursues a mischievous Gingerbread cookie through the woods to Grandma’s house. Original music, snowy scenery, and everyone’s favorite Big Bad Wolf make up this seasonal favorite for our youngest audiences.
