Designed for Audience and Child Interaction
This play is different than others you may have seen. We know that children like to touch and move
 –
 and have included some ways for them to do so during this play.
 There are specific points when the actor interacts with the audience, including using mists of water.
 We want children to feel free to vocalize. This is a no-shushing show.
 If a child tries to approach the stage area or touch the set, please remind them to stay with the audience.
Your experience of the Play starts as soon as you enter the Lobby
For your safety and enjoyment please keep your children in one area of the Lobby
 Ushers will give you a place in the lobby to put your coats and shoes.

Plan on doing a few of the following pre-show activities in the Lobby:
 Put on a pair of
cozy puppet socks.
 
 Play I SPY! (We will have images around the lobby).
 Make a story with your puppet socks, sing songs, and get talking with these questions:
o
 How do you celebrate birthdays?
o
 What kinds of food do you eat on your birthday?
o
 Who do you spend time with on your birthday?
o
 
What’s your favorite thing about birthdays?
 
After the Play
 Everyone will receive a postcard.
 You can look more closely at the set and ask questions to our staff.
