Local Company Offers Comfort During Stay-at-Home Through Storytelling, Education, and Entertainment
In support of the community's efforts to "Stay-at-home" and combat COVID-19, The Magik Theatre will offer electronic programming for families, including digital storytimes, at-home activities, and E-cademy theatre education classes. All scheduled performances, camps, and programs have been canceled through May 2020, however, Magik will resume with camps, classes and the production of Dragons Love Tacos when it reopens.
The Magik Theatre continues to serve families by providing entertainment, education, and comfort with daily videos that are created to bring learning and laughter to friends at home. Families can go on storytelling adventures with Pirate Pete, create silly songs and stories with Magik Madlibs, or practice a calming children's yoga session during the company's regularly scheduled programming on Facebook.
"In this timely effort to alter our routines and social distance, this serves as a challenge for children who seek routine, social learning, and comfort. This is what makes a child thrive," said CEO Frank Villani. "In this time of social distancing, we wanted to do our part with what we do best as a company by entertaining and enlightening the hearts and minds of our children and bringing a little bit of MAGIK into their world every day."
