Great lineup of shows for camp groups and individuals looking for family friendly entertainment
On Thursday, May 28, Aurora Children’s Playhouse: Summer Edition kicks off with a special Thursday performance with Juggler Ron Anglin and his Heroes I Have Known juggling show. During this special performance, Anglin shares stories of the jugglers, teachers and soldiers who have been his personal heroes as he does the gravity defying routines that they inspired or helped him learn.
In Aurora Children’s Playhouse: Summer Edition’s grand finale The Atlanta Shakespeare Company presents Shakespeare 4 Kids: Dream Scheme by Erin Hurley Sheffield with music by Andrew Kane. This is a fun (sometimes wacky) take on A Midsummer Night's Dream, designed for kids ages 5 and up. A production filled with music, mayhem, some friendly sock puppets, crazy costumes, a magic “plot easel” named Pleasel and a special show robot aptly named “Sho-bot”, kids may even leave quoting some Shakespeare and singing in the aisles. Either way, everyone will leave smiling.
Aurora Children’s Playhouse features puppeteers, magicians, storytellers, jugglers, musicians and is intended for youngsters to have their first theatrical experiences. At about 45 minutes in length, perfect for the young attention span, these lively performances are fun for the whole family.
Programming in Aurora Theatre’s 2014-2015 Aurora Children’s Playhouse is possible through generous support from Metro Waterproofing.
The show dates are as follows:
