Theater Schmeater to Continue Free for the Family Series with RAGGEDY ANN AND ANDY

Theater Schmeater continues its long running Free For the Family series of park shows with Raggedy Ann and Andy, by Patricia Thackray. A rag-tag band of discarded toys gather to find new children to be played with in this hilarious take on the Raggedy Ann and Andy children's books. Not just for children, Thackray's script includes problems and situations familiar to any adult, who will delight in the everyday humor-what do you do with a misplaced and lonely camel, for example?

Theater Schmeater's annual Free for the Family series of productions aims to instill a love of theater and performance in new audiences, young and old. Made possible by the generous support of The office of Arts and Culture and 4 Culture, Theater Schmeater's Free for the Family park shows have entertained audiences for the better part of two decades, and have become a summer tradition for many families.

Raggedy Ann and Andy features a talented cast of vagabond actors including Devon Allen, Aaron Allshouse, Geb Brown, Alysha Curry, Kirsten Deane, Mary Hould, Lauren Huston, Charlie Schuster, and Gary Zinter.
