Wheaton Family Theatre Series

InterAct Story Theatre’s Wheaton Family Theatre Series is a free, monthly performing arts series that runs October - May each year.  Originally launched in 2015 through a generous Wheaton Cultural Projects Grant by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the goal of the Series is to present a variety of performing arts programs that celebrate the rich diversity of our arts community and offer our Wheaton kids and families a window to the world around us through family programs and arts learning activities in theatre, storytelling, music, dance, puppetry, fusion arts, and more! 

Due to Covid-19, the launch of Season 6 is postponed until early 2021, when we look forward to bringing you a season full of original theatre programs by InterAct Story Theatre! To keep up on the latest news about InterAct’s Wheaton Family Theatre Series and find out our next program dates, join our mailing list. In the meantime, we invite you to check out our past seasons!

Season 5: October, 2019 through February, 2020

Season 5 of the Wheaton Family Theatre Series got off to a rollicking start with a brand new play by InterAct Story Theatre! Sadly, the spring events slated for Spring 2020 had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, but happily many of the events originally scheduled for Season 5 will be featured as part of Season 6 in spring 2021. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Bobtail BONG BONG: A Monkey’s Tale

October 2019

In this interactive forum theatre experience for kids and families, audiences follow Bob the Monkey’s madcap misadventures and help Bob figure out where they went wrong and got in trouble monkeying around. Audience members make suggestions about how Bob could do things differently, and watch Bob and friends role play out their ideas. Can Bob flip the script and turn things around?

Preposterous! A Happenstance Clown Circus

December 2019

InterAct Story Theatre welcomes back our friends from Happenstance Theater as these charming vintage clowns play circus animals, sing as a human calliope, do a classic circus mirror routine, invent a number of ridiculous “entrées,” perform live music, and execute a preposterous slow motion number involving a pie! All ages.
