October 17, 2015– S4K: MacBeth
by Atlanta Shakespeare Company

Shakespeare 4 Kids: MacBeth is a high-octane, kid-friendly adaptation of the Shakespearean classic. Replacing the daggers and swords with lollipops, puppets, and live music, S4K: MacB is designed to engage the imagination and tickle the funny bone of the whole family.  This 45-minute, instantly-engaging production has one goal in mind: to bring the magic of Shakespeare’s characters and language alive, while keeping it accessible and appropriate for kids of all ages.

by Arthur Atsma
In what has become an Aurora Children’s Playhouse holiday tradition, the Halloween Magic Show returns for its fourth year with Atlanta magician Arthur Atsma the Saturday before Halloween. Arthur Atsma will amaze and amuse folks of all ages with a show filled with captivating sleight-of-hand magic, audience interaction and comedy. It’s not necessarily magic, but Arthur Atsma has a way of making tickets disappear, therefore reservations are strongly recommended for this popular performance.
