The popular Theater for Young Children is back in Ballard this week: they will be performing productions of Juan and Maria and Scaredy Squirrel on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 11:15 am at the Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Ave NW).
The first performance, Juan and Maria, is based on a Filipino folk tale similar to Hansel and Gretel; Scaredy Squirrel is created by author Melanie Watt. Both will be acted by professional local artists and musicians, and are geared towards children ages 2 to 10. The 50-minute performances are free, but they’ll accept donations of $10 per family.
Theater For Young Children is an outreach wing of Sweet Pea Cottage Enterprises; learn more here. The free performances are made possible thanks to Sweet Pea Cottage and Seattle Parks and Recreation.
