Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for senior citizens and children, and can be purchased online at goodwilltheatre.net or by calling the Box Office at: (607) 772-2404, ext. 301. The show is recommended for children Pre-K to 3rd grade.
“Bringing a child to the theatre for the first time can be nerve-wracking for parents,” said Naima Kradjian, Goodwill Theatre CEO. “They want to introduce their kids to live performance, but they worry the show won’t hold their child’s attention, or that their child will be disruptive. We try to make it easy for parents, by offering shows that are engaging for children, and relatively short, and by providing a free craft activity for children at every performance.”
“The shows do come with an age recommendation, but that is just a guideline, and all ages are welcome,” Kradjian continued. “Quality children’s shows can be enjoyed by parents, too.”
ArtsPower’s “Your Alien” stars Claire Rachel Howell, Tanner Sands, Jeorgi Smith, and Rebecca Soelberg. The show is based on the book by Tammi Sauer, adapted and directed by Greg Gunning, with music and orchestrations by Richard DeRosa, and lyrics by Greg Gunning.
