La MaMa Kids

La MaMa Kids Banner

La MaMa Kids is a series of creative workshops and performances for the young and the young at heart. Master artists from La MaMa perform family friendly shows and teach theatre crafts in workshops that encourage imaginative play and hands-on learning. Children and adults learn the basics of storytelling, dance, mask, puppet-making, and more! Fun for the whole family!
This fall La MaMa Kids is excited to have family events in conjunction with our biennial Puppet Series. We will present a puppet workshop with Heather Henson, and welcome back our family friendly puppet show from Loco7 Dance Puppet Theatre – The Adventures of Seucy and Boto – in Repertory.
In November we will have an inter-generational workshop lead by Lois Weaver, a music workshop by Gino Sitson, a new and exciting workshop by Lourds Lane which helps us find our inner-superhero and an end-of-year celebration, filled with performance, music and dancing.
