Kidstock! presents "Onstage with Max & Suzy" a live interactive theater performance for ages 3 and up that dramatically combines familiar titles with creative substitutions. Max & Suzy are best friends who co-direct a theater troupe of kids on their street, but can never agree on which play to produce. Audience members get "in on the act" when their friends don't show up for rehearsal as our young playwrights learn to play right and share their imagination onstage for all to enjoy.  A fun experience for all!

Our programs are free and open to the public, but space is limited.  Get a ticket for this program starting Monday, August 4th at the Youth Services Desk.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Library.
