Ages 3 – 8
See an elephant riding on a scooter, a giraffe steering a car, a bird giving flying lessons, and more surprises in “That’s Quite Absurd!” the latest fun-filled production from the adored Paper Bag Players! Delight in the group’s classic blend of cardboard and paper sets, whimsical stories, lovable characters, and live music that will have you and your family singing and dancing in the aisles.
The Paper Bag Players is a non-profit theater company of adults who create and perform original, contemporary, musical theater for children ages 3 through 8. Their shows, based on a child’s everyday experiences, combine short plays, rousing songs, freewheeling dances, audience participation, mime, and painting and drawing on stage. Common household objects, cardboard boxes and brown craft paper brightened with splashes of poster paint and crayon transform into their sets, props and costumes. The Paper Bag Players touring has taken them to 37 states and 12 countries internationally. The Bags have received numerous accolades and awards over their 59 years performing.
