Children's Theatre-In-The-Woods

Vienna, Va. (April 9, 2015)— Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts announces its 2015 season lineup for Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods. A Washington area summer tradition for children and their families since 1971, Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods features diverse acts ranging from puppetry, storytelling, dance, theater, folk, and Kindie-rock. A complete chronological calendar and links to print-ready images are available in the online pressroom.

Thirteen of the 33 acts this summer make their Wolf Trap debuts, including Unlocking The Truth, a heavy metal trio with a positive and inspirational message; Latin Grammy nominee Mister G; and educational hip-hop group Alphabet Rockers. Another unique debut act is musical theatre group Story Pirates who transform children’s short stories into sketch comedy musicals. The group will act out stories written and submitted by children in the Washington D.C. Metro area for its performances at Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods. Returning favorites include the Grammy winning children’s music icon Dan Zanes and Kindie band Recess Monkey.

Nestled in Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods welcomes guests Tuesday through Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m., beginning
June 23 through August 8. Tickets are $8 or $10, and children under two enter free of charge.

In addition, through its Public Ticket Service Program, Wolf Trap Foundation engages local nonprofits serving disadvantaged children and families by providing thousands of complimentary tickets to select Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods performances.

“Education is a large part of Wolf Trap’s mission, and we believe it is crucial for young children to have access to the arts,” said
Arvind Manocha, president and CEO, Wolf Trap Foundation. “Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods provides the opportunity for children across the region to experience the arts, and for many it is their very first arts experience.”
