The Affordable StoryBook Theatre Series is Coming to Raleigh

I am a firm believer in the arts.  In fact, I was just a few hours short of having a drama minor in college. I also spent a lot of my "single, before marriage, and kid years" participating in community theatre. I loved it. 

I've been in "Annie Get Your Gun", "Grease", "The Wizard of Oz", and a few comedies, too.  I believe the arts are an important part of a child's education, and it is important to expose children to theatre at a young age, as much possible.  

But guess what? A lot of the productions here in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area have become incredibly expensive. Tickets for a family show could set you back $200, depending on the production.  With prices like that, I have to really want to see a show before I splurge on tickets. 

I'm excited to announce on my blog that Broadway Series South in collaboration with Casa Mañana of Fort Worth, TX are bringing a new theatre series called, Storybook Theater, to Raleigh. 

Storybook Theatre features four shows with a professional cast of Equity actors in shows staged specifically for children and families. Proceeds from Storybook Theater benefit Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  

The 2013 inaugural season showcases four popular children's tales; beginning March 1 with Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale; and continuing throughout the year with Disney's Winnie the Pooh, Kids; Dora the Explorer, Live! Dora's Pirate Adventure; and Frosty the Snowman.

The one-hour performances are geared to young audiences, and ticket prices are designed to introduce more families to professional live theatre. Tickets start at just $14 each.  Ticket prices for special Friday School Performances are $7.50 for all seats. Marbles Kids Museum members save $2 per ticket purchased through the assigned Marbles ticket link.  Season tickets are $70 and $52; Marbles member price is $66 and $48.  A limited number of VIP seats for each performance are $47 per ticket.  VIP seats include premium seating, character meet and greet and a special gift. Tickets can be purchased at the Progress Energy Center Box Office, Ticketmaster Outlets or by calling: 1-800-745-3000.

Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale will be in production March 1-3, 2013. 

Disclosure: I was invited to attend the opening night performance, but I cannot attend.  However, I feel so strongly about my support of the arts that I still wanted to help promote this new, affordable series.
