Children's Book Club and Performance Series

It’s never too early to jumpstart a child’s imagination and teach kids that reading and live theater is about pleasure! The Children’s Book Club and Performance Series, was created as a way to enhance in-school literary and curriculum programs while providing cultural and artistic opportunities to elementary and middle school students for whom a lack of arts programming is evident. Additionally, our weekend program allows for parents and grandparents to enjoy live theater along-side the children in their lives! QPAC is committed to providing the community with the services and resources they deserve while continuing to make sure that more individuals, families and children discover the benefits from making the arts a central part of their lives.

Sponsored in part by Council Members Barry Grodenchik, Rory Lancman and Eric Ulrich

The award-winning Paperbag Players come to QPAC

Come on an adventure with The Paper Bag Players in our new show, Trip to the Moon. Children ages 3 to 8 will delight in our classic blend of cardboard & paper sets; whimsical stories; lovable characters; and live music that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles. Young kids will be drawn to our three plays on the theme of space. In the title piece, they’ll meet the fantastic Dr. Phinneas Fizzleby and his assistant Calliope. Climb aboard as they build a rocket ship that blasts off to the moon. In The Girl and the Star, Abby longs to meet a distant star; imagine her surprise when the star pays her a visit. Then, follow the sun in Rise and Shine as it wakes up and prepares for work, punching in as the moon punches out. The fun continues with Charlie the Whistling Bear. See what happens when Charley’s whistle is stolen. Squeaky Shoes tells the story of a robber with unfortunate footwear, a madcap tale told completely through sound effects. In Maximisillius, a wizard magically moves a mountain with the help of the audience. The show is rounded out with The Tommy-185 about a charming robot that loves to dance, and Crazy Face, in which the entire cast assembles a whacky face that sings a song straight out of Vaudeville.

Trip to the Moon: Created by Ted Brackett, John Stone and Kevin Richard Woodall. Directed by Ted Brackett and Kevin Richard Woodall, with Musical Direction by John Stone and Scenic Design by Jonathan Peck. Performed by The Paper Bag Players: Ted Brackett, Caroline Carden, Kathy D. Harrison, Kevin Richard Woodall, with John Stone at the keyboard.
