Summer Children’s Playhouse Lineup

Atlanta Shakespeare Company

By William Shakespeare, Adapted by Adam King

Bursting with energy, this adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the perfect introduction to the hilarity and excitement of the Bard. Four actors bring the story to life through puppets, live music, and silly props, igniting the imagination of even the youngest of theatre-goers as they experience the beauty of Shakespeare’s language. 

 

 

 

Big Thinkers Science Exploration


An exciting exploration of electricity and heat for the entire family. Watch the Big Thinkers experiment with a 50,000 volt Tesla coil and enjoy hands-on demonstrations of a hair-raising electrostatic generator, an indoor lightning strike and an experiment with levitation using static electricity. Full of audience participation, this action-packed show combines learning and fun to help answer kids’ burning scientific questions while entertaining them with shocking experiments.

Squeeze the Clown

Squeeze the Clown takes his audience on a wonderful trip of clown music, clown magic, and clown imagination. Squeeze the Clown is brought to life by Tanne award-winning performer Meredith Gordon, a founding member of Humorology Atlanta! that brings clowning and circus to hospitalized children. He has set sail with Clowns Without Borders USA, providing laughter and a much-needed break to hurricane survivors in the Caribbean. Inspired by Motown era soul music, Buster Keaton, and the circus, Meredith as Squeeze expands our perception of what is possible. Audiences will be mesmerized and filled with Joy from the antics of Squeeze the Clown.

Blacktop Playground: Improv Comedy for Kids
Blacktop Improv

What happens when a T-Rex tries to fly an airplane? If you skip dessert, does your cupcake cry because it misses you? Using quick wit and imagination, Blacktop instantly creates funny scenes using suggestions from the crowd, and when those suggestions come from kids, you get a hilariously creative comedy show with tons of audience interaction. Comprised of internationally known comedians that have appeared on BET, HBO and Comedy Central, Blacktop Improv’s success with youngsters comes from their own child-like sense of humor.

Aurora Theatre assembles the best children’s performers in the region, bringing them to Gwinnett County in order to give parents and their children a chance to experience their artistry in our amazing facility in downtown Lawrenceville.

We feature puppeteers, magicians, storytellers, jugglers and musicians as a part of this series intended for youngsters to have their first theatrical experiences. At about 45 minutes in length, perfect for the young attention span, these lively performances are fun for the whole family.
