Talespinner Children’s Theatre Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:09:46 +0000 Read more]]> Talespinner Children’s Theatre (TCT), in Cleveland’s vibrant Gordon Square Arts District, is pleased to announce Family “Play” Day at the Theatre featuring three performances of our educationalpeter-and-the-wolf-poster-thumb outreach production, Peter and the Wolf. There will also be family-friendly activities between shows including face painting, a meet-and-greet with the characters and puppets as well as engaging science experiments presented by the The Children’s Museum of Cleveland.

Inspired by the playful, beloved work composed by Sergei Prokofiev to introduce children to classical music, Peter and the Wolf explores a story of friendship and extraordinary bravery. Adapted by Cleveland-based playwright Greg Vovos and directed by TCT’s Director of Education Katelyn Cornelius, this 30-minute adventure is a perfect illustration of imaginative teamwork, and how to use creative thinking to overcome a bad situation. A child of Peter’s age can do plenty! Along the way, there is laughter, song, and audience interaction!

Between performances, families are invited to stay and play with TCT and The Children’s Museum of Cleveland. Children of all ages can enjoy making crafts on theme with the performance while The Children’s Museum of Cleveland engages children in exciting science-based activities. Activities will not be available during the 30-minute performances at 11AM, 1PM, and 4PM.

Admission bracelets for the day are $10 per individual. Stay for all three performances if you want!

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016
Performances at 11AM, 1PM, and 4PM. Activities will begin after the 11AM performance and continue throughout the day excepting performance times. The theatre and all activities will close at 5:30PM.
