What: Molly Knochel and Ryan Reid, along with their able assistants, will lead children in movement and acting games to give a taste of these arts in a fun, structured environment.  An allergy-free, non-sugar snack will be provided.

When: Show and Kids Program begin at 4:30pm; Parents or caregivers are asked to arrive at 4:15pm to get children settled before heading to the theater just down the hall, and to pick them up immediately following the performance (estimated running time: 75 minutes).
