Do you want to take your children to see live theater? We have organized some group ticket purchases for the Cleveland Playhouse and Magical Theater.
Cleveland Playhouse Children's Series
Each year NEST submits a group order in September to secure the best pricing for tickets to the Children's Playhouse Series, held at the Cleveland Playhouse. This is an excellent way to introduce or offer live theater for your children over the age of 2. Tickets for this school year 2013-2014 have already been purchased.
All shows start at 10 am unless otherwise noted.
Oct 30 - Me and My Shadow
(noon) - Jan 15 - The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other Eric Carle Favorites
Jan 29 - The Intergalactic Nemesis
Feb 5 - DiNO Light
Mar 12 - Doktor Kaboom!
May 7 - Love (Performance at 10:15)
All shows have recommended ages or grades. However I strongly encourage
you to see beyond those suggestions as homeschoolers. If your older
students are into set design, lighting, sound and direction, they can
enjoy the simplest of performances looking for these elements and could
present an elaborate breakdown, presentation for you at home.
Additionally, the younger ones, will also enjoy the sites and sounds of
the more mature performances as each performance is no longer than 55
mins. I find as an adult, I learn so much from attending each performance
no matter the subject matter. As homeschoolers we always have full
control over how deep or light we wish to explore a topic with our
children. It is up for interpretation as always.
Please see the website for full descriptions & Teachers Guides of each performance. http://www.playhousesquare.org/childrenstheater/
* - Middle School and Highschool workshops available. Call the Playhouse directly to register your child if interested.
