Middletown. A big bag of laughs

| 19 Jan 2023 | 01:21

Mark your calendars for Sunday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. and join us in the William and Helen Richards Theatre at Orange Hall for an afternoon performance created for children and their families and friends.

Because of their many awards, the Paper Bag Players are credited as being the “foremost children’s theatre company in New York.” Their program includes new skits and classic sketches, freewheeling dances, hilarious stories, laughs, whimsical music, singing, audience participation, and their signature paper and cardboard sets and costumes.

Half of the ten skits and sketches promote audience participation.

Since 1958, this innovative company has set the standard for original productions that speak directly and vividly to children, while amusing adults with sly wit. Perfect for children ages 3 through 8, the Paper Bag Players plays are lively, funny, fast-paced, colorful, and thought-provoking performances for any theatre-goers. The cast is happy, enthusiastic, and engaging and keep the hour-long show in high gear.

The 2023 Paper Bag Players Study Guide is available free by emailing a request to cultural@sunyorange.edu
