Critically acclaimed theatre company, Actors’ Repertory Theatre at Santa Monica Playhouse announces the extension of the all-new version of their singing, dancing, musical comedy Barnyard Madness with the Three Little Pigs, on the boards at the Playhouse Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30 and 3 p.m. now through June 26. Kids will delight in it all, as will adults, who can chuckle along with clever parts of the script, which is based on the well-known classic the Three Little Pigs — but more colorful and fun.
Barnyard Madness introduces the fun rhythms of the late 1940s via colorful musical numbers and detailed costumes created by award-winning designer Ashley Hayes. The production offers life lessons about stereotyping and relations. Acclaimed designer James Cooper’s set is a bright and delightful diner that makes you feel right at home. The show is written by the award-winning creative team of Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie, directed by Playhouse Associate Director Serena Dolinsky, and features Morgan Smith Feldman, Melissa Gentry, Vanessa Marie, alumni Aaron Burns, Graham Silbert and Celeste Akiki.
There are great opportunities for audience participation and this would be a great place for a child to celebrate their birthday with friends…and we did just that with two adorable youngsters at the recent show I attended!
This is what family theatre is all about and the Santa Monica Playhouse offers the best.
Special birthday and tea parties, hosted by a gaily-costumed member of the Barnyard Madness Company, are available in conjunction with every performance. Catch Barnyard Madness Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30 and 3 p.m. through June 26. Tickets are $10.50 for kids 12 and under and $12.50 for adults. Reservations are always necessary.
