"Storytown" is a super-fun interactive comedy show for kids ages 3-10. The kids in the audience create the setting, which might include superheroes, undersea adventures, princesses or dinosaurs -- the sky's the limit. Then they'll lend a hand creating the backdrop on butcher paper with the help of the show's artists. As the actors and musicians bring the tale to life before your eyes, props and costumes are created on the spot. Through it all, a pianist scores the action, backing original lyrics created then and there by the actors. The result is madly creative mayhem fueled entirely by the creative energy of the audience!
