Thank you, Maryland State Arts Council!
The curtain has come down upon the Discovery Stage Series. From January 2019 through March 31, 2019, Port Discovery showcased performances from award-winning Maryland State Touring Artists, thanks to support from the Maryland State Arts Council.
Designed specifically for children ages two and up, the Discovery Stage Series featured interactive performances featuring some of the best children’s performers throughout Maryland.
The first Discovery Stage Performance, Happenstance Theater’s “Pinot & Augustine”, kicked off the theater series as children and parents giggled along – and celebrated the simple joys of life with the theatrics of the classic, family-friendly clown duo.
Featured next were two Discovery Stage Series performances from Story Tapestries with Arianna Ross! Story Tapestries with Arianna Ross allowed audience members to enjoy an immersive learning experience with Arianna who utilized dance, storytelling, music and art to entertain and enrich the audience's’ knowledge of the world, culture and more! Little learners were also invited on stage during the show to try their hand at playing new musical instruments!
In addition, Port Discovery guests and little learners were able to enjoy three (yup, three!) different Discovery Stage Series performances from Parent’s Award Winner, Silly Goose and Val! Audience members laughed, sang, hoot and hollered with kid favorite Silly Goose and Val! This comedy-filled and interactive theater performance engaged young and old audience members in jokes, stories and ventriloquism.
From jokester clown-duos to ventriloquism experts, Port Discovery is so glad to partner with the Maryland State Arts Council to were able to bring this child-focused theater series to Port Discovery this past winter!
