Wheaton Family Theatre Series Free Event – Alex and Olmsted’s “Milo the Magnificent”
InterAct Story Theatre presents FREE performances and events for kids and families with the Wheaton Family Theatre Series!
Alex and Olmsted’s Milo the Magnificent is a highly engaging puppet show about an aspiring magician. This wordless comedy, inspired by turn of the century vaudeville entertainers, is as highly physical as it is charming. Using stunningly innovative puppetry, Milo presents a variety of magic tricks which don’t always go as planned. Milo the Magnificent, was awarded a 2017 Jim Henson Foundation Grant, a Greenbelt Community Foundation Grant, and received an excellent mention in the New York Times. Alex Vernon and Sarah Olmsted Thomas are also proud company members of Happenstance Theater with whom they have created 10 productions since 2012. Great for all ages!
There will be two performances at Highland Elementary School, 3100 Medway Street, 20902: Saturday, October 16 at 11 a.m. and Sunday, October 17 at 2 p.m. All performances are free and open to the public!
