Stellaluna at The Orange County Performing Arts Center

My kiddos love the book Stellaluna and when I heard that it was coming to the Orange County Performing Arts Center, I couldn’t wait to share.
Stellaluna will play Friday, March 5th, at 7pm.
Saturday, March 6th, at 1pm and Sunday, March 7th at 1 and 3pm.
Stellaluna is a baby bat that  is separated from her mother. She lands in a nest of birds and her whole world is turned upside down. This adaptation of the book, tells the story of Stellaluna’s journey to behave like a good bird should and find her true self amongst friends of a different feather. It is one of our favorite books and this play is specifically designed for kiddos aged 4 and up.
Audience members will have the special opportunity to meet the author of Stellaluna, Janell Cannon, after the performances March 6 and 7. Cannon will be available to sign copies of her books and meet with fans. Epiphany Books will be onsite with copies of Cannon’s books for sale: 20 percent of sales will go towards supporting the Center’s Family Series. Friday evening ticketholders are welcome to return during the weekend to have their books signed by Cannon.

Additionally, each show will include free pre-performance activities such as coloring, games and puzzles, and a reading area with an assortment of children’s books. For Stellaluna, the Center is partnering with O.C Parks to create specially-themed activities about bats and birds. These fun activities are designed to give families opportunities to spend quality time together at the Center. The activities will take place one hour before each performance.

Stellaluna is recommended for children ages 4 and up. Tickets are $18 and they are available online at, at the Center’s Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling 714.556.2787.
