The 26th Season for ARTrageous is upon us. There are four remaining performances and all of them sound really great!
ARTrageous is a great way to either introduce your children to various types of performing art or to share with them various kinds of performing art. Regardless of the reason for attending, each show is sure to delight both you and your children.
Here’s the performances being offered this season:
November 17, 2012 — The Button People: A World Music Safari Adventure by Mystic Drumz
This multimedia adventure in world music is perfect for the entire family, and features a cast of colorful characters who will take the audience on a journey of discovery as they search for “The Button People.” Laughter and learning will come together as the audience embarks upon a musical voyage that introduces them to a cross-section of rhythms and sounds. From the bongos and congas of Cuba to the giant Taiko Drumz of Japan, the show incorporates more than 30 unique instruments.
January 19, 2013 — The Cinderella Files by Madcap Puppet Theatre
Ever wonder what would happen if Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother went on vacation? In Madcap’s twisted take on the classic fairy tale, it’s up to the Fairy Godmother’s husband, Ralph, to get Cinderella to the ball. With help from the audience, giant puppets, and the “big wand,” Ralph just might have a chance.
Join Thumbelina, the miniature heroine who emerges from a flower, as she encounters her friends (Toad, Fish, Field Mouse, Mole, and Swallow) in a series of astonishing, delightful, and sometimes perplexing adventures in nature’s tiny, enchanted world. THEATRE IV brings Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairytale of heroism and surprise to life in a joyous musical adaptation.
March 16, 2013 — E Sin Mid d’Afrika (Come Follow Me to Africa) by Bi-Okoto Cultural Institute
The Bi-Okoto Cultural Institute takes you on a journey to experience Africa with their program, “E Sin Mi d’Afrika.” The program presents African culture, language, geography, and history through authentic songs and folk stories, and features drumming and dances from the countries of Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and South Africa.
