Children's Book Club and Performance Series

QPAC believes that 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 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 programs allow for parents 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 Eric Ulrich and Mark Weprin

The Paper Bag Players’ new show, HOT FEET, will have you singing, dancing, and laughing from start to finish. With the traditional blend of paper and cardboard costumes and sets, whimsical sing-along songs, and hilarious stories, this year’s show features dancing cookies, a runaway chicken, bustling subway cars, a talking building who refuses to be torn down, a polar bear who springs to life in paint and song, and a very mixed up family of giant tubes. Perfect for children in grades Pre-K through 3, HOT FEET is a fun-filled celebration of classic sketches from the delightful imagination of The Paper Bag Players.

Study guides are available to help teachers connect their field trip to the classroom.
