Beginning December 27, the Alliance Theatre for the Very Young will stage a brand new production for very young audiences – Little Raindrop Songs, Written and Directed by Puppeteer Michael Haverty, with music by the Japanese ‘pajama-pop’ band Lullatone.
Little Raindrop Songs is a whimsically theatrical and imaginative journey through an anything-but-normal day. The audience is led through a fully interactive world made completely of brightly colored paper which transforms dramatically into multiple settings — from the bedroom where we wake and get ready for the day, to the kitchen where we learn to eat a healthy breakfast, into the big world beyond where we experience sunshine, birds, bugs, and animals, a garden, a playground, and finally a big rainstorm which washes us inside for a bath and bedtime lullaby.
Combining unexpected puppetry, a vibrantly colorful and transformative two-dimensional set design, whimsically comic performances, and the catchy pajama-pop of Lullatone, this fully interactive theatrical performance will connect with the very young and invite them into the wonder of the artistic experience.
Theatre for the Very Young is designed for children ages 18 months – 5 years. Each production overcomes age, language, and developmental barriers, expanding the consciousness of very young audience members and integrating bi-lingual elements into each show. Theatre for the Very Young nurtures creative thinking, allowing children to experience art and culture on their terms.
“Theatre for the Very Young engages both parents and their pre-school children in creative experiences. The fourth wall is dissolved as young ones willingly become part of the experience,” says Rosemary Newcott, the Sally G. Tomlinson Artistic Director of Theatre for Youth & Families.
