Many young people think of "culture" as a heaping plate of vegetables - supposed to be good for them, yet not all that enjoyable.
While culture and arts are widely recognized as a part of a balanced educuational diet, it's often received by children as the lonely broccoli that just doesn't go down so easy. Here's where the Touhill's new youth engagement activity comes in. Arts@Play serves up a healthy plate of culture - disguised as dessert.
The goal: Give young people the opportunity to experience the performing arts in an entertaining, comfortable, fun setting.
Public performances are at 7 p.m. Tickets may be purchased by phone, at the Ticket Office and online. Simply scroll down and find the red "Purchase Tickets" to the right of the performance date you would like to attend.
