What is Theatre for the Very Young?

  • A professional performance for children ages 05 years old and their grown-ups
  • An artistic experience that overcomes age and developmental barriers, language, and developmental barriers, expanding the consciousness of very young audience members and integrating bi-lingual elements into each show.
  • A way for focus and creative thinking to be nurtured, or even discovered for the first time!
  • A cultural experience for the very young on their own terms
  • An inventive approach to making quality art experiences
  • A fun and inspiring experience for both children and their parents

"Theatre for the Very Young engages both parents and their pre-school children in creative experiences. The fourth wall is dissolved as young ones willingly become a part of the experience."

—Rosemary Newcott, director

Near a majestic mountain in a vast jungle with many mango trees, it has not rained for weeks and weeks. The village well and pond are dry. Monkey and his friends look everywhere for water, but they have no luck. And then Monkey remembers a story his mama used to tell him, a story about how peacocks can make it rain by dancing. Join Monkey on his journey and together, we can discover if this magical story is true. Filled with traditional Indian music and dancing, this charming retelling of an Indian myth promises to engage the senses and inspire the imagination.
