With theatres and live performances not yet open in the first half of 2021, we discovered creative ways to bring the Series to life virtually for Season 6. As sad as we were not to see everyone in person, we embraced the challenge to be creative and found a whole new way to celebrate theatre for kids and families in Wheaton. Season 7 of InterAct's Wheaton Family Theatre Series will enjoy both an in-person return to Wheaton but also celebrate our virtual performance opportunities for our communities beginning this September. Thanks to the partnership support of Highland Elementary School and their PTA, Connecticut Avenue Estates Civics Association, Wheaton Hills Civic Association; support from a plethora of community members; and funding from Maryland State Arts Council, Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, Nora Roberts Foundation, and individual and corporate donors.
