Play Date Theater: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The third season of Play Date Theater kicks-off this month. Held on the third Saturday of each month from 2-3 p.m. in Central Library’s Auditorium, Play Date Theater offers LIVE performances designed for the whole family, but with the attention span of young children in mind. It’s a great way to introduce children to the theater arts. It’s entertaining for older kids, but geared to children Preschool through Grade 2. Kids have an opportunity to practice theater etiquette while being entertained by performers who understand the interests and abilities of young children. Most shows include audience participation and an opportunity to meet the performers.
