Saturdays this July you have a great opportunity to charge your kid's imagination for adventure. The Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA)series with the Duluth Playhouse presents The Adventures of a Rock Named Sticky every Saturday this month.
The TYA series aims to delight all audiences, but particularly the Pre K age group. The shows are interactive and silly, keeping kids and families enthralled and involved for 40 minutes to an hour and is a perfect addition to a Saturday afternoon with your family.
The Adventures of a Rock Named Sticky bring the theatre company The Boogers back to the stage. Giving kids a real professional taste of theatre just for them.
"We looked around and there was a lot of theater happening around town, but there wasn't much geared toward children that was professionally acted," Director Robert Lee said.
The show is a world premier where learning in synonymous with having fun. Their time machine is ready and their imaginations are ready for adventure.
"We wanted to take it back a little and not just teach kids things, but create an environment that's really fun and celebrates a subject. So they can learn without realizing it," Lee said.
Join the Stevenson siblings and their annoying cousin as they travel through time to explore the history of their pet rock named Sticky.
The Adventures of a Rock Named Sticky shows Saturdays in July at 11 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. Tickets are $5. Depot Museum and excursion ticket holders get a $1 discount.
