Announcing Play Days with Dragon’s Eye Theatre
At Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse
Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1
Come out to exercise your imagination and help us invent our newest play!
Dragon’s Eye artists will lead a series of 30 minute play sessions that get participants up on their feet creating characters and stories inspired by Smith’s unique architecture and toys. Ideas generated during Play Days will be the building blocks for a brand new theatrical adventure that Dragon’s Eye will premiere at Smith Playground & Playhouse in the 2014 Fringe Festival (September 5-21)
Recommended for children ages 4 to 9 and the adults who love to bring them to Smith
This event is free, suggested donation of $5 per family much appreciated
More details coming soon…
