Dear Next Stop...Decatur
The Alliance is pleased to announce our first Theatre for the Very Young production of the 2013/14 season – Waiting for Balloon! This encore production tells the story of two childlike hobo-clowns waiting near the railroad tracks for “balloon.” The problem is that neither of them knows exactly what “balloon” is. Through delightful trial and error, exploration and interaction with the audience, the two piece together what makes a balloon a balloon and celebrate all that is discovered while we “wait!” Waiting for Balloon is a joyous introduction to gentle clowning and the joy of creating puppets from found objects, designed by the creative mind of Puppeteer Michael Haverty.
Theatre for the Very Young is an artistic experience for children ages 18 months – 5 years that overcomes age, language, and developmental barriers, expanding the consciousness of very young audience members and integrating bi-lingual elements into each show. Each production nurtures creative thinking, allowing the very young to experience art and culture on their terms.
Waiting for Balloon runs at the Alliance from October 17 – November 9. I hope you can share this information with your readers.Please let me know if you have any questions.
