Theatre for the Very Young
Saturday, July 23 & 30 @10am
Theatre for the Very Young is a multi-sensory immersive, interactive, devised, and engaging experience meant to invite children to listen, to move, to empathize, and to play through not only their eyes but through all their senses. Theatre for the Very Young is becoming more and more prevalent in the U.S. It introduces 0-6 year olds to the power of art, expression, and creative play which is imperative to cultivate young imaginations–and imagination is everything!
Go Go Garden is a gentle 30min interactive, immersive theatre experience for ages 0-4. A young girl goes out into her garden to play and is surprised by a friendly garden fairy who explores the wonders of the garden. They become fast friends and engage their young audience in 30 minutes of playful fun!

On the eve of a historic election for Attorney General, the play opens in a posh, loft apartment, where Internal Affairs investigator, Freddie Laurenzo, and Deputy Campaign Manager, Quincy Marcus, surround forensics expert, Janus Taylor – and her bloody, swollen face. Once joined by senior legal counsel for the campaign, William Fink – and over the course of one night – these four unlikely souls must endure epic consequences in the exposure of a major crime.
