Starting on Saturday, Feb. 6 families and children will be able to head to neighborhood libraries across the city for a free theater performance on select Saturdays at 11 a.m.
By using comedy and storytelling the shows give children a literacy lesson while having fun. From preschoolers to teens, children get to create and write their own stories to act out with the professional improv troupe.
Giving kids a chance to collaborate on theatrical performances may be a new trend in Philly and it's definitely an easy way to spend a Saturday together.
Here is the list of dates and locations for the free series.
• Saturday, Feb. 6 -- Whitman (200 Snyder Ave.)
• Saturday, Feb. 20 -- Philadelphia City Institute (1901 Locust St.)
