The popular Children’s Series at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center (the Kate) begins with a new TheatreWorksUSA’s musical adaptation of “The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System,” on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 11 a.m.

When the class gets lost on the way to the planetarium, Ms. Frizzle saves the day by blasting into outer space for an epic interplanetary field trip! But when rivalries both old and new threaten to tear the students apart, our young heroes must learn to pull together or risk getting forever lost in the solar system. This production is recommended for children in grades K through 5 and runs approximately 60 minutes.

The 2018-2019 Children’s Series also features a classic Christmas tale, the return of a mischievous Parisian schoolgirl, and a groovy blue cat. Shows include Virginia Rep’s musical production of “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” on Saturday, Dec. 8; ArtsPower’s “Madeline and the Bad Hat” on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019 and “Your Alien” on Sunday, April 14, 2019; and TheatreWorksUSA’s “Peter the Cat” on Saturday, June 1, 2019.

The Children’s Series is sponsored by Crew 538 LLC and Vivian Partridge. For information and tickets for all shows at the Kate, visit www.thekate.org or call 860-510-0453. 

The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center is a non-profit performing arts organization located in an historic theatre/town hall on Main Street in Old Saybrook. Originally opened in 1911 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Center has been renovated with public funds from the Town of Old Saybrook and donations raised by the Trustees of the Center. It includes a 250-seat theatre and a small museum honoring Katharine Hepburn, Old Saybrook’s most celebrated resident. As befits an organization born of such a public/private partnership, programming is eclectic, offering something for all ages and income levels on the Connecticut shore and in the lower river valley.
