Upcoming Theatre Three Sensory-Free Shows

The Three Little Kittens on Sunday, March 3rd @ 11:00AM

THE THREE LITTLE KITTENS may have to find their mittens—but what they really want is to be a singing trio. Teaming up with a show business hound (Barker Doggone), Lucy, Ricky and Ethel embark on an adventure with the well-meaning penguin Waddles Greenway to thwart a rascally rabbit Harry Hoppit. Together they learn that friendship is the greatest bond and that dreams really can come true.

The Adventures of Peter Rabbit on Sunday, April 14th @ 11:00AM

Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-Tail, Benjamin Bunny, the McGregors and all their friends come to life in this delightful adaption suggested by the characters created by Beatrix Potter. THE ADVENTURES OF PETER RABBIT is family fun and a THEATRE THREE tradition for the spring break!
