South Bend Civic Theatre Announces New Children's Plays

South Bend Civic Theatre announces the inaugural production of their new Children's Theatre Series in the Warner Studio. The series, which concentrates on original children's plays acted by adult actors, opens with a new adaptation of award winning author Emily Arnold McCully's picture book "Little Kit or, The Industrious Flea Circus Girl."

Part Dickensian and part adventure story, the play tells the story of Kit an orphan girl in Victorian London who has to masquerade as a boy to get employment with a flea circus. Escaping the cruel streets of London, Kit travels with the circus only to discover her life is made harder under the wicked eye of the circus' proprietor, Professor Malafetta.

Adapted and staged by James Geisel with actors April Sellers, Brad Mazick, Don Elliott, and Maureen Wojciechowski, the play opens Saturday April 9 with performances at 11:00AM and 2:00PM. Additional performances are Sunday, April 10 at 2:00PM and Saturday, April 16 at 11:00AM and 2:00PM. Tickets are $10 and available by calling the box office at 574- 234-1112 or online at
