Wheaton Family Theatre Series

Season 8: 2022—2023

The Wheaton Family Theatre Series is a FREE public performing arts series for kids and families. Last season, we embraced the challenge to be creative and found a whole new way to celebrate theatre for kids and families in Wheaton. For fall 2021 through spring 2022 the Wheaton Family Theatre Series enjoyed both an in-person return to Wheaton but also celebrated our virtual performance opportunities for our communities.  Season 8 of InterAct Story Theatre's Wheaton Family Theatre Series returns to all in-person performances presents a series of interactive family events, for the Wheaton community, in theatre, dance, storytelling and world music 
completely FREE to the public!

 

Thanks to the partnership support of Highland Elementary School and 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. Support also provided by a grant from the Greater Washington Community Foundation.

InterAct Story Theatre Presents

The Hero of EVERYTHING

Captain Everything & Sidekicks

October 8, 2022 at 11 a.m. and October 9, 2022 at 2 p.m.

Event held at Highland Elementary School - 3100 Medway Street, Wheaton, MD 20902  FREE and open to the public! No tickets or registration needed.

 

Calling all superheroes! InterAct Story Theatre presents an action packed, interactive superhero play about cooperation, teamwork, and learning that it's okay to ask for help—even if you think you need to go it alone. Captain Everything loves saving the day and doesn’t need anyone’s help to do it. Sure, she has an Amazing Alliance of Superheroes, but no one minds if she just handles everything herself. Or do they? What happens when everyone else gets tired of being left out of everything and quits? And what happens when Captain Everything faces something she can’t do? Can she face her fears and work with her team to save Citytown City? Or will it be too late? The touring version of our interactive theatrical experience for kids and families is performed by three actors on stage and a whole team of superheroes in the audience…including YOU! Best for ages 5 & up.
