My family loves the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and we usually watch a few shows as a family per year. I love introducing my kiddos to the performing arts. One of their first exposures to the theater was through the Family Series at the Samueli Theater. I took my then almost four and five year old to their first play, Stellaluna.
The Discovery Series, designed for kiddos ages 4 to 8, and features five shows. The Explorer Series is for older kiddos and features two shows. It is geared for children age 7 and older. All shows feature pre-show interactive activities in the lobby of Samueli Theater.
The 2012-13 season kicks off this weekend, October 20t-21, with Exit, Stage Left. The show is described as
“Parallel Exit creates moments of simple magic for audiences of all ages. They blend theatre, dance, and music into works of physical theatre that transcend age, language, and cultural barriers. Exit, Stage Left brings the joy, laughter and technical wizardry of Vaudeville to life once again. This break-neck show will have audiences of all ages rolling in the aisles”
Some of the future shows include Treasured Stories(A Brown Bear, A Caterpillar And A Moon), Sleeping Beauty, Recess Monkey and 500 Clown Trapped.
