Westport Country Playhouse’s 2014-15 Family Festivities Series will present three performances of “Frosty,” on Sunday, December 14, at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m.  Due to ticket demand, the 11 am performance was added with plenty of seating available. Seating is limited at the 1 and 4 pm shows.

Produced by the Barter Players, the show is recommended for ages 4 to 10. Running time is approximately one hour. Tickets are $20. 

“Frosty” is about a young orphan named Billy who discovers magic in a stolen hat when he places it on a snowman’s head and that snowman comes to life. But can Frosty the snowman help Billy find his real family in time for Christmas? Billy and Frosty embark on a New York City adventure filled with thrills and chills and the discovery that the real magic of the season is Love.

Family Festivities shows are presented on selected Sundays from November through March. Upcoming shows are:  “Stella, Queen of the Snow,” on Sunday, January 18, the story of two children as they spend the day playing in the snow, discovering the world of winter together; “The Lightning Thief,” on Sunday, February 8, about  mythological monsters and the theft of Zeus’s master lightning bolt; “Dog Loves Books,” on Sunday, March 1, a musical about the irresistible Dog who decides to open his own bookstore; and “Curious George,” on Sunday, March 29, about the inquisitive, lovable little monkey of books, movies, and the award-winning PBS television show.

At each Family Festivities performance, Westport Country Playhouse will once again host a book collection for Read to Grow, Inc.  Bins will be located in the Playhouse lobby for donations of gently used and new children’s books which will be given to families with limited access and to community resources that serve them in the greater Fairfield County area. 

Family Festivities Corporate Sponsor is Pitney Bowes.  Family Festivities Partner is Darlene Krenz.  The series is also supported in part by Westport Young Woman’s League.
