Young Child Fun Fair

WOYC_header_image

Fun child & family activities

community resource agency booths

The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

Today we know more than ever before about the importance of children’s earliest years in shaping their learning and development. Yet, never before have the needs of young children and their families been more pressing.

The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to recognize that children’s opportunities are our responsibilities, and to recommit ourselves to ensuring that each and every child experiences the type of early environment—at home, at child care, at school, and in the community—that will promote their early learning.


 

The annual Week of the Young Child Fun Fair is scheduled April 25 at City Park, around the playground next to the zoo.

It will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There will be live entertainment, booths with family activities, community resource agency booths to provide information, and more.

A Romantic Comedy Comes to the Playhouse

sweet and hilarious

A modern, anime-inspired take on a popular play

See what happens when governments get involved in people’s love lives. The Mikado (emperor) declares it illegal to flirt, marriages are arranged, and the the only way to prevent your own excitation is to be come the executioner.

CHIEFTAIN PHOTO/JOHN JAQUES<br /><br />
Damon Runyon Repertory members (from left) Matt Anderson, Kiera Roberts, Rebecca J. Work (top), Bryanna Dewar and Lacey Hunter rehearse an anime-inspired production of 'The Mikado.' The opera opens Saturday.In this more “modern’ version…

  • The costuming and makeup are inspired by the contemporary Japanese anime creative efforts that are so popular today.
  • The company has also changed the choreography to imitate anime’s characteristic exaggerated movements, large eyes, etc.
  • The dialogue between the traditional musical numbers was updated.

Damon Runyon’s modern “The Mikado” is representative of the company’s delight in tweaking with an audience’s expectations. If you love traditional Gilbert and Sullivan this play is not for you. But if you love the spirit of “The Mikado” or are simply in the spirit for a little fun, then maybe this is the play for you.
