In my last post, I talked about “Crimes of the Heart,” a play that is currently playing at the Empty Space Theater http://www.esonline.org/. If you had read that post, you would also recall that it was not suitable for children, as it deals with topics that are “taboo” for youngsters.
If you love live theater, and are looking for something both you and your kids can watch together, then you’re come to the right website (and the right post)!
The Imaginators, a play that is put on by the California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) Theater for Young Americans, will be having its last performance at CSUB on April 22 at 10 AM at the Dore Arena Theater. It may not be possible for you or your children to make it, as you might have work and your children should be in school around that time, but not to worry!
I’m here to tell you about an upcoming play that your children (and you) will find entertaining!
Have you ever read the classic children’s play, The Three Little Pigs? If your answer to that is yes, then you know what the plots about. If your answer is no (!), then I’ll explain the plot to you in a nutshell. The story centers around three pigs and a big, bad wolf. Each pig is building a house of his own, and the wolf wants to be let in to each house. When the pig say no, the wolf blows it down. He was successful in blowing the first two houses down, as they were made with straw and wood. He blowed in vain at the third pig’s house, but was unsuccessful in blowing it down, as it was made with bricks.
If you want to know more, try going to your local library and see if The Three Little Pigs is available for checkout. It’s a children’s classic, how can it not be?
Anyway, The Omnipresent Puppet Theater http://www.omnipuppets.org/–also known as “Bakersfield’s Professional Puppet Theater”–has been putting on puppet shows around the Kern County area since 2003 and starting April 20, the theater will be putting on The Three Little Pigs using puppets to tell the story.
The Three Little Pigs will be playing at the Gaslight Melodrama Theater and Music Hall for the next three Saturdays (April 20, April 27 and May 4) from 11:00-2:00 PM. Admission is $6.00 per person.
For more information about the show, visit the Omni Puppets website, which I’ve linked on this post. If you go, let me know how it is in the comments section!
