Carnival-Themed Discovery Day Lets Kids Explore Theater

Families are invted to discover the fantastick world of theater at Long Wharf Saturday Nov. 7 for its third annual Discovery Day.

This year's community outreach event features a carnival theme and is appropriate for kids, age 2 to 16. Backstage tours and hands-on workshops in mask making, audio-visual experiments, juggling, prop making, and story-telling will be offered from 10 am to 1 pm. To enhance the carnival themed Discovery Day, there will be face painting, food and music.

Through these creative activities, kids will have the opportunity to collaborate in putting on a play of their own. This year, families will tell the story of the Forgotten Clown, an original skit performed by the Next Stage Residents and the children.

“It is my wish that all who attend will leave with a greater understanding and enjoyment of theater," said Annie DiMartino, director of education and Next Stage administrator for Long Wharf. "Hopefully this day will begin the development of a lifelong interest in the arts."

There is a suggested donation of $5 per family.
