As part of our mission to enrich Annapolis with professional NYC theatre, Infinity is proud to bring a children’s show as well as artistic workshops to Anne Arundel County and surrounding areas each summer - in order to help teach children the infinite possibilities found only in theatre! We also offer a full summer EMC Internship Program for college-aged students, as well as a part-time Internship for high school students.
SHOWS FOR CHILDREN
Infinity is excited to announce our 2013 summer show for kids….
In this faithful adaptation of the classic Italian folk tale by Carlo Collodi, a poor yet kind-hearted wood carver named Geppetto creates a puppet called Pinocchio from a magical piece of wood. After misbehaving and running away, Pinocchio meets a cast of colorful characters who lead him further astray through thrilling misadventures. But, with the help of the Blue Fairy and the Spirit of the Cricket, he resolves to find Geppetto and fulfill his dream of becoming a real boy. PINOCCHIO is an enchanting story that's sure to entertain audience members of all ages.
Each summer, Infinity brings a show for kids to Anne Arundel County! Our shows in past summers, STORIES - LIVE AND IN PERSON and THE TALL TALES OF ENOCH, both written by Co-Producing Artist Director Alan Ostroff, have offered children delightful theatrical experiences they will surely remember!
“Lies. Falsehoods. Tall tales. Call them what you will, some children cling to them long after attaining the age of reason, and Infinity Theatre is to be applauded for broaching the topic with a humorous touch in founder Alan Ostroff’s original play for 3 to 10-year-olds, THE TALL TALES OF ENOCH…. I had a blast at this matinee, so trust me that this is one kid’s show worth your price of admission, no matter your age.” - Bay Weekly
Infinity Theatre Company offers artistic workshops for kids ages 3 – 12 led by professional teaching artists. Workshops include theatre games, improvisation, movement, music, and more! We can customize the classes to fit the needs and size of your group. Infinity is currently booking workshop dates for Summer 2013!
