Family Performance


Sunday, March 15, 2020
11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Ages 3 to 8

See cowboys and cowgirls gallop on horseback, astronauts meet a sweet alien, and other flights of imagination in “Here We Go” a joyous journey with the Paper Bag Players. Delight in a blend of new and classic sketches with original music, signature cardboard sets, and lovable characters that will have your family giggling for more.

The Paper Bag Players is a non-profit theater company of adults who create and perform original, contemporary, musical theater for children ages 3 through 8. Their shows, based on a child’s everyday experiences, combine short plays, rousing songs, freewheeling dances, audience participation, mime, and painting and drawing on stage. Common household objects, cardboard boxes and brown craft paper brightened with splashes of poster paint and crayon transform into their sets, props and costumes. The Paper Bag Players touring has taken them to 37 states and 12 countries internationally. The Bags have received numerous accolades and awards over their 60 years performing.

Doors to the concert will open at 11:10 am
