Entertaining and engaging
shows for the whole family
Family Series 2014 welcomes an exciting lineup of entertaining and engaging shows to the VAA stage. All three performances will appeal to families and their children in grades K-5 and include interactive components with audience participation.
On January 18, Broadway Center for the Performing Arts invites children to join in an American story with Becoming Bridges, a multimedia theatrical journey that brings the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Langston Hughes and many other influential authors, poets, activists and human rights pioneers to life. This performance includes music, songs, video elements and a post-show question and answer session.
Caspar Babypants will play clever and quirky music for all ages on February 8, featuring songs from his new album, Baby Beatles! Many parents of the ‘90s nostalgically know Caspar Babypants as Chris Ballew from Seattle’s alt-rock group The Presidents of the United States of America. This performance is sure to be a hit for both young and older audiences.
Finally, on March 8, families can travel along with young protagonist Milo on his imaginative journey in The Phantom Tollboth. Book-It Repertory Theatre’s adaptation of Norton Juster’s novel inspires an interactive relationship between audiences and literature, and presents a fun and engaging portrayal of a favorite childhood classic.
