Lee Theatre to Present 'Sparkles' Saturday
On Saturday, May 20, Lee Theatre will present the play “Sparkles: The Caterpillar Who Became a Butterfly.” The free performances, geared at audiences ages two and above, will take place at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. in the Buzz Oates Theater, located in Lee’s Communication Arts Building.
“Lee Theatre is excited to produce another show aimed at the very young,” said Associate Professor of Theatre Dr. Christine Williams. “Theatre for this age group is a growing movement in the larger theatre world that seeks to introduce our youngest audience members to the magic and fun of theatre. With short performances designed just for their attention span, children have the opportunity to enjoy a performance made just for them.”
According to Williams, this delightful short play designed for young children follows the story of Sparkles the caterpillar as she grows into a butterfly. Interspersed with songs and opportunities for children to join the action, this is a performance that will be sure to delight the audience.
This event is made possible through a grant from the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce.
Admission is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
