Spinning Dot Theatre Productions at Yellow Barn Theatre

Are you worried that your child’s first year of school could spell the end for family fun time? Fret not, moms and dads. Spinning Dot Theatre is bringing three completely kid-friendly productions to the Yellow Barn Theatre in Ann Arbor during the beginning of the school year, Aug. 22, Sept. 26 and Oct. 24, 2015.

Kick off the school year by reminding kids that art is just as important as a STEM education at the first musical puppet show on Aug. 22. This show, The Cat Who Ran, is based on a Japanese tale of the unlikely friendship between a cat and a fish, written by Naoko Kudo.

Next up, on the last Saturday in September is the play, This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing, written by award-winning playwright, Finegan Kruckemeyer. This contemporary play tells of three twin sisters, abandoned and forced to find their way in the world. One goes one way, one goes another and the third stays put.

The last show, Sedna, closes out this set of shows at on Oct. 24. This show, adapted by Spinning Dot Theatre Artist in Residence Kelly Joyce Fielder, takes kids inside a magical pillow fort. Once inside, storytellers will harness the magic of the fort and kids will experience the ancient Inuit tale of the Sea Goddess, Sedna.

These Spinning Dot Theatre Productions shows take the stage at the Yellow Barn Theatre, located at 416 W. Huron St. in Ann Arbor. Each show begins at 11 a.m. and tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids.

Shows are suited for kindergarten-aged kids and older.
