As we soar into September, InterAct Story Theatre has a new production to make the trip even more fun for children — and I have two Family 4-Packs of tickets to see it for two lucky winners!
The Hero of EVERYTHING is a fresh, fun, and interactive way for kids and families to explore the importance of teamwork and the perils of trying to do everything yourself, all by being part of the action of a superhero play for heroes of all ages. The experience of the performance begins at the top of the show, with a brainstorming session among the actors and the audience — let’s come up with some ideas for some brand new superheroes for today’s play, superheroes no one has ever seen before! — and continues after the performance with opportunities for autographs and photographs with the actors.
Parents come away with a discussion guide they can use to explore the ideas in the play with their children and continue the theatrical experience at home. Kids come away with an amazing superhero adventure, and an invitation to create some of their own to share with InterAct!
The Hero of EVERYTHING premiered as a touring production last fall and instantly became one of the company’s most popular plays, having been performed for nearly 20,000 children and adults throughout Maryland. The production also incorporates STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) learning in a fun and accessible way.
The Hero of EVERYTHING will run September 12-27 at the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre located at 8641 Colesville Road in Silver Spring, MD. Performances are on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30am and 1:30pm. Recommended for ages 4 and up, tickets are $12 (free for ages 2 and under). There is free weekend parking in the Wayne Avenue Garage (921 Wayne Avenue), a short walk from the theatre.
