Kidstage Stars – TOYS!

Ages: 5-12
What happens when the door of the playroom closes? Join all your favorite toys from the Army Men to the Potato Heads and find out what goes on when your child leaves the room and the toys are left to their own devices. Follow Sally, the vintage cowgirl, as she comes face to face with the newest, most technologically advanced toy, Sammy Spaceman. Consumed with jealousy, Sally and her pals do everything they can to ditch Sammy only to realize that the only way they can get back home is if they work together. A story of trust, friendship, and camaraderie, Toys teaches the importance of working as an ensemble and supporting each other onstage and off!  (All students enrolled in the class will be cast as a character in the play. After the last rehearsal the kids will perform the play at 7:00 p.m. for friends and family.)
