Family Fun!

The 2009-2010 season at Sangamon Auditorium includes the Family Series, with three great shows that will help introduce your children to the three different areas of the performing arts (dance, music, and theater).

Dance -

Darwin the Dinosaur
Friday, October 16, 2009 - 7 p.m.

Corbian Visual Arts and Dance combines the telling of a heart-rendering story with a truly unique and innovative theater experience where electroluminescent crayon-like creatures light up the stage in a blackout setting.

Music -

Ralph's World
Saturday, January 23, 2010 - 11 a.m.

Ralph's World is equally loved by cool-seeking parents as it is by children, fortunate to be living in an era where their music both rocks and respects their intelligence and curiosity.

Theater -

Junie B. Jones
Friday, February 26, 2010 - 7 p.m.

Outspoken, precocious, and lovable Junie B. Jones stars in a colorful, funny, fast-paced musical about new friends, new glasses, sugar cookies, the annual kickball tournament, and other various first-grade angst-ridden situations.

Individual tickets for these events go on sale August 24, but if you want the complete experience of attending all three shows, you can save money and become a Family Series subscriber now! A Family Series subscription is $33 for children and $45 for adults. Just call the Ticket Office at 217.206.6160 or 800.207.6960.

As an added bonus, Sangamon Auditorium hosts free pre-show activities, including fun crafts and interesting demonstrations, beginning one hour before each Family Series show. To get a better idea of what we do during pre-show activities, check out these pictures from Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny on January 30, 2009.
