Friday Funday


Interactive Theatre Shows for Children Ages 4-6! Great for preschools, child care centers, kindergarten classes, and families.

Join Edgar Allan Crow and the Clubhouse at the Playhouse Gang each month as they dramatize a favorite story using their imaginations and the costume pieces and props they find in their Magic Trunk. Children learn the Clubhouse pledge and secret handshake, and listen for the word of the day.
