Riverside Theatre for Kids presents Playtime in the Park, a brand new FREE program for the community’s youngest audience members.
Started in September, Riverside Theatre’s Education division has showcased dance and theatre offerings twice a month on Saturdays on the Theatre’s new outdoor Loop Stage.
These offerings are ideal for kids 2-5, but entertaining for parents and the whole family, too!
On the second Saturday of most months at 11am, theatre student performers will present original interactive plays. Throughout the shows, young audience members will be encouraged to join in the stories in fun and exciting ways.
On the third Saturday of most months at 11am, faculty members and students of the dance education program along with professional dancers from Ballet Vero Beach will present dance-along classes, mini-performances, and more.
The Riverside Theatre Education Program is committed to promoting educational opportunities to students of all ages by producing quality work for young people and families. Lives are transformed through the study, exploration, and creation of unique theatre and dance experiences.
