Sangamon Auditorium has lined up a fantastic UIS Family Series for 2013-2014.  As with all of our series, there are many good reasons to subscribe.  As subscribers, you and your family can enjoy a substantial discount on tickets and you guarantee your same seats across the series.  Think of your kids enjoying knowing where their seats are located each time you come into the theater for an event.  It's a VIP-kind of feeling!

This year's Family Series will be enjoyed by kids from toddlers through upper elementary school and those who love them.  Subscriptions are only $45 for adults and $30 for kids/youth high school age and younger.  That's THREE SHOWS for a total of only $45 for adults and $40 for kids!

The series begins Sunday, November 10 at 3 p.m. with Masked Marvels and Wonder Tales.  Mask maker and storyteller Michael Cooper weaves tales that involve colorful characters, beautiful masks, and large-scale costume puppetry.  This is a great event for kids who have a creative spark of interest in visual art.  The things Cooper brings to life are amazing!

Next up on the Family Series is one of our longtime favorites, Junie B. Jones, making her third appearance on the Family Series on Friday, January 24 at 7 p.m.   The place was packed for each of the previous performances of this musical adventure of this popular children's book character.  We welcomed Junie in 2007 and 2010, so she is overdue for a return visit!

We conclude the season with We're Going on a Bear Hunt on

Wednesday, April 16 at 7 p.m.  Bear Hunt appeared on our school series, Class Acts, last season and the students, teachers, and Sangamon Auditorium staff had such a marvelous time taking the well-loved bear hunt journey with this troupe of playful performers, we decided they simply *had* to come back for this year's Family Series.

All of this year's Family Series events are only one hour in length.  Each performance is preceded by an hour of family-friendly activities and displays in the lobby.  We hope you and your family will join us for these three memorable events in 2013-2014!
