The Grand's 'Serious Fun Children's Series' to Stage STUART LITTLE, 1/29
The Grand 1894 Opera House's Serious Fun Children's Series presents the award-winning Dallas Children's Theatre's production of Stuart Little in one fun-filled family performance Wednesday, January 29 at 10am. Based on all the charm and joy of E. B. White's classic novel, Stuart Little, this charming story proves great things can come in small packages.
Enjoyed by children ages five and up, this classic tale exemplifies what it takes to be a loyal friend in a world where adventures and misadventures stretch the imagination. Stuart Little is an unusual mouse born to an ordinary family. He has a friend, a bird named Margalo, and a not- so -friendly-acquaintance - the spiteful family cat, Snowbell. Through a variety of colorful characters, Stuart learns to survive in his super-sized human world and discovers the true meaning of life, loyalty, and friendship.
Recognized by Time Magazine as one of the top five children's theatre companies in the U.S., Dallas Children's Theatre's productions are selected and designed with youth and family in mind. The materials they choose reflect cultural diversity and encompass folk tales, music, dance, puppetry and more that appeals to a vast and impressionable audience. Designated an American Masterpieces Touring Artist by the National Endowment for the Arts, Dallas Children's Theatre is celebrating its 28th season. "Your family will squeal with delight with this latest production from the Dallas Children's Theatre," touts The Dallas Morning News.
