One of the things we enjoy the most about putting on shows for children, with characters that they know and love, is that they dress up for the theater, but in their own style.
For Pippi Longstocking – we had whole girl scout troops come in with freckles painted on their noses and hair in pigtails. How I Became a Pirate brought in pirates of all shapes and sizes. Little House on the Prairie had bonnets aplenty representing American pioneers. Our latest show, Pinkalicious, takes the cupcake, as it were, for dressed up audience members – almost everyone showed up in pink!
We love that kids and parents dress up for our shows. It includes the audience in a way that we could never do on our own – and makes the action on stage all the more accessible to even the littlest audience members.
Who is your child’s favorite character to dress up as?
Dressing up for a show - It's a family affair!
