Port Discovery Children’s Museum is launching a new children’s theater series, The Discovery Stage Series, this weekend!
Featuring a variety of interactive, entertaining, and imaginative performances perfect for children ages two and up, The Discovery Stage Series will run through March 31, 2019 and will feature interactive performances from three different highly respected children’s artists including Happenstance Theater’s “Pinot & Augustine”, Parent’s Award Winner Silly Goose & Val, and Story Tapestries with Arianna Ross. The unique, interactive and education theatrical performances add to Port Discovery’s existing visual and cultural arts offerings, and encourage children to explore theater through hands-on play and learning.
Happenstance Theater’s “Pinot & Augustine” kicks of the series, which is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, on Saturday at 1:30 PM. Audiences are invited to giggle along – and celebrate the simple joys of life with “Pinot & Augustine,”a classic, family-friendly clown duo inspired by the golden age of Circus. Kids will dance along to musical surprises, enjoy theatrical flair, and laugh until it hurts (in a good way!) at surprises from the sublime to the ridiculous. (Get ready for lyrical melodies on a musical saw to pratfalls and a whoopee cushion!)
Additional performances include:
Story Tapestries featuring Arianna Ross (Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 2:00 pm, Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 2:00 pm): Enjoy an immersive learning experience with Story Tapestries with Arianna Ross, who uses dance, storytelling, music and art to entertain and enrich audiences’ knowledge of the world.
