Seaside REP Theatre 2015 Kids' Camps & Shows
March 19, 2015 by Teresa Lischka
Seaside Repertory Theatre's 2015 season brings more productions and programs for children than ever before. Outdoor theater performances, theater camps, storytelling adventures, and improv workshops are coming to SoWal beach towns along Scenic 30A this spring and throughout the summer.
We're big fans of the REP along with kids of all ages throughout the land. Here's what's coming up this season for SoWal kids living and visiting in the South Walton area. See you at the show!
Outdoor children's theater productions are being staged in Seaside and Rosemary Beach promising fun for all the family. All performances are free and open to the public. These fantastic productions will run throughout spring and summer. These are some of our favorite events as locals and we always manage to catch one or more! Bring a blanket or low back chair, a beverage or two, and sit back and enjoy the show.
The Commedia Robin Hood
Mondays from 5:00-6:00pm, March 9th - April 13th at the Seaside Amphitheater. The merry troupe, Columbina, Arlequino, Punchin and Rosetta tackle, tumble, trick and trip their way through the tale of Robin Hood with fantastic abandon. Get ready for action-packed clowning with puppets, singing, patter verse and mock combat in this unforgettable adaptation. The Commedia Robin Hood is graciously sponsored by The Seaside Merchants.
