2015 Family Series

Just announced: the Englert Theatre’s 2015 Family Series will begin on January 17, 2015.

We are excited to announce this upcoming season’s Family Series events at the Englert Theatre! Building on the dazzling experiences of this past year’s programming featuring Visible Fictions’ Jason & the Argonauts, Lightwire Theater, Imago Theatre’s Frogz!, and Terrapin Puppet Theatre’s Love, we have a whole new set of ground-breaking programs to offer.


The Joshua Show

How do you cheer up when life gets you down? What does it mean to be yourself? When Mr. Nicholas, the sock puppet, makes an unnerving self-discovery that causes him to spiral down a path of loneliness and despair, his soul mate Joshua teaches him to celebrate his differences during a show full of songs, comedy, whimsy, abundant joy, and a smattering of tap dancing.

$10 Adult General Admission (On Stage Seating)
$5 Youth (17 & Under) General Admission (On Stage Seating)

The Peking Acrobats

Since their Western debut in 1986, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; they are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting, and gymnastics; and they defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. They set the world record for the Human Chair Stack on Fox’s Guinness Book Primetime where they astounded television audiences with their bravery and dexterity as they balanced six people precariously atop six chairs, 21 feet up in the air, without safety lines!

la-maleta-01Roseneath Theatre’s La Maleta

In Roseneath Theatre’s La Maleta, a co-production with Hancher Auditorium, ten-year-old Roca leaves Colombia for North America clutching her suitcase, in which she believes her grandmother is hiding. In her new home with a new friend, the suitcase opens the way to an adventure. Incorporating Spanish and English, La Maleta gives voice to young people struggling in a new language and helps us all to hear them.

Recommended for grades 2–6

The Adventures of Robin Hood

Somewhere near you there is a band of brothers fighting for justice, seeking to rid the land of evil and return hope to the poorly treated. They are lean, mean, trained justice fighting machines, armed with whatever comes their way! Nothing is as it seems in this Sherwood Forest, but one thing is for sure . . . no rogue is safe!

Join internationally-acclaimed Visible Fictions for a silly and unexpected take on Robin Hood and be prepared to unleash your imagination!

Suitable for those ages 7 and over.
