The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to offer another Children’s Theatre performance at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center from 10:00-11:00am on Friday, April 15, 2016, featuring The Bremen Town Musicians performed by Porkchop Productions. The program is designed for grades 4K through 5th grade. Schools, daycares, community groups, families, and individuals are welcome to attend. Tickets are $2 per child with accompanying adults admitted at no charge. Parking is free.
Live music and audience participation highlight this contemporary adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, The Bremen Town Musicians. A donkey, dog, cat, and rooster go on an adventure in search of a new life in Bremen Town. Will they find musical stardom or will their plans of making it big be thwarted by a gang of bumbling robbers? Young audiences and adults alike are sure to be entertained from start to finish, all while being reminded to respect elders and that one is never too old for dreams to come true.
