Every summer Saturday morning when I was little girl, you could spy me on my Big Wheels trailing after my big sister towards the local theater for the Saturday morning children’s shows. Jill was tasked with holding the money our mom gave us and buying our tickets, and she always made sure we each got a brownie at intermission. We saw every fairytale there was, and lingered after each show to wait for the actors to greet their young audience. It was thrilling every time the house lights dimmed, the red curtain lifted, and every time Belle or Princess Aurora stepped out the backstage door to say hello. And brownies at 10a might just be the best a kid’s life can get!

The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck is welcoming back their Saturday Family Series on July 8th with Storybook Tales: Pinocchio and Robin Hood, a 45-minute adventure, brimming with audience participation and hilarity. You can make your own family memories every summer Saturday through August 19th with classic shows, shortened to about 50 minutes just for children and families. Sleeping Beauty will be performed with marionettes, and a special performance by Keith Bindlestiff of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus will journey through the American midway, from jaw-dropping Sideshow feats to Big Top stunts and circus skills. Families can even see their own children and friends perform in the Saturday Family Series at the CENTER when shows are performed by the CENTER’s own Kids on Stage and musical theater workshop.

Thanks to a special grant from Stewart’s Shops, all tickets this summer are just $7, for children and adults. “We are so grateful for this generous grant, which allows us to continue to offer professional family fare at affordable prices,” said Babette Fasolino, The CENTER’s Education Director.

The CENTER’s Saturday Morning Family Series – Summer 2017 at The CENTER For Performing Arts at Rhinebeck, 661 Route 308 in Rhinebeck: Saturdays, July 8-August 19th; all performances begin at 11:00 a.m. and are approximately 50 minutes in length. Tickets may be reserved online, in advance or sold at the door one hour prior to the show. Or call the Box Office at (845) 876-3080.
