The Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) series aims to delight all audiences, but particularly the Pre-K age group. Shows are interactive and silly, keeping kids and families enthralled and involved. Each show is no more than an hour, and is performed by a troupe of professional actors, who not only act in the shows, but build the set and costumes, find the props, run the house, and more! It’s a perfect addition any afternoon out with the family.
