Big-bolt-a-fun-new-play-for-young-audiences
This production will be written and designed specifically to appeal to the developmental and educational needs of very young children ages 3 – 7. The play explores the concept of cause and effect as well as basic pre-math concepts through the story of a little boy named Jimmy. Jimmy discovers what can happen when a seemingly unimportant but very big bolt is taken out of its intended place.

SARAH THE DINOSAUR

by Andrew Perry and Kathleen Fletcher

Sarah-the-dinosaur-the-best-new-plays-for-children-in-austin-texas
Perfect for Pollyanna’s summer production, this play will be enjoyed by children as young as four and as old as four-hundred. The production is the story of a young girl named Sarah who is tired of no one listening to her. But when her pre-school teacher tells her that she can “become anything she puts her mind to,” Sarah decides that the best way to get attention is to become a dinosaur and ROAR! Sarah soon learns that all attention is not positive when stomping and roaring turns the heads of everyone she encounters. Ultimately, Sarah finds her voice and the adults in her world learn to think twice before speaking.

Share the Experience!

We work all year round on new play productions, but until our audience arrives, the magic of theatre does not happen!

In that respect, every single performance is unique. It happens only once between the imaginations of the people in an audience, the actors and story on the stage. We work every day to create the best stories we can, but we need you to bring your imaginative power to the experience in order for real theatre to happen.

So, teachers, caregivers, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends, we ask that you meet us half-way.

Bring a child to see our plays at the Long Center, or bring us to your venue.

Together, we can create a more hopeful culture, for our children and our world!
