A narrator walks on stage and finds a storybook with no text! Then learns the actors scheduled to perform are stuck in traffic!! The solution? Have children from the audience volunteer to come on stage and become a character in: THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD! Audience volunteers help "The Greatest Interns" (professional adult improvisers) make up a story on the spot based on audience suggestions. We will throw on silly costumes and create a 45-60 minute story complete with improvised dialogue, music, singing & dancing!! After the show, a design team transforms the original improvised story into a purchasable digital and physical storybook. EVERY child in the audience that wants to perform will be given an opportunity to be on stage. There is no forced participation. This is an all ages show particularly great for ages 4-14. Children age 2 and younger are FREE. Doors open at 2:30pm. Join us before the show every week for coloring, crafts, board games & dress up fun on the stage. ***FREE snacks and FREE locally roasted COFFEE are always provided*** SATURDAYS & SUNDAYS @ 3:00pm February 16th, 2019 - March 22nd 2019 The Newport Theater 956 W Newport Ave. * 2nd Floor (* There is no elevator.
