Wheaton Family Theatre Series
Season 6: January through June, 2021
The Wheaton Family Theatre Series is a free public performing arts series for kids and families.Season 5 of InterAct's Wheaton Family Theatre Series was cut short due to our public health emergency. Theatres and live performances are as of yet not open, and so we needed to get creative to bring the Series to life for Season 6. As sad as we are not to see everyone in person, we've embraced the challenge to be creative and have found a whole new way to celebrate theatre for kids and families in Wheaton.
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, we are proud to present our lineup for our new, virtual Wheaton Family Theatre Series Season Six!

The Magic Tree
performed by Khaleshia Thorpe-Price

A funny, uplifting story adapted from a Zambian folk tale, performed by actor and teaching artist Khaleshia Thorpe-Price. The animals of the grasslands are in terrible trouble—it hasn’t rained in ages, and everyone is hungry and thirsty! Their only hope is to find out how to get the fruit from a mysterious magic tree, but they must journey across the land to learn how...and they have to remember the secret on the long journey back! Suitable for ages 3 and up.
