"Saturdays at ACT" - Bring your families to the theatre tomorrow!

We're so excited to be welcoming Bright Star Touring Theatre back to ACT on Saturday, November 12. They're bringing two shows in - Sadie's Spectacular Saturday at 10:00 am and Maximus Mars at 11:30 am.

These shows are just terrific. The stories are so funny and the costumes are so fabulous that it's just a bonus that the underlying message of the show is so helpful. David mentioned in the article that he hoped the shows would spark conversation between parents and children. As a mom who has seen Sadie's with my 4 year old, I can say that they absolutely do. It's so very handy to have an easily understandable story to reference when we talk about treating people with respect, or not hurting feelings with our words, or being inclusive rather than exclusive.

The other great thing about these shows? The price. $5 tickets for everyone. It's an inexpensive way to do something special together as a family. It introduces your kids to live theatre, which is such a gift. And guess what? These are kids' shows - we know your 3 year old is not going to sit completely still and quiet for 45 minutes. But these professional actors know how to handle a crowd of this age group - and you'll be surprised how engaged your child will be!

Hope you'll join us - we'd love to see you tomorrow at the theatre!
