The Music Center of Los Angeles County presents a two-day Toy Theatre Festival, offering family-friendly professional Toy Theatre productions, presented in repertory over the two days.
Eighty performances will take place in various spaces throughout Walt Disney Concert Hall, including the main auditorium and locations traditionally not open to the public like Choral Hall, the Green Room, the Founders Room, and Studio #3.
In addition, there will be a Student Stage showcasing Toy Theatre presentations created by children. These works were created by students who worked with Music Center teaching artists. There will also be workshops where families inspired by these creations can create their own Toy Theatres and puppets to take home.
Participating artists will include Alejandro Benítez, Chinese Theatre Works, Great Small Works, Alison Heimstead, Laura Heit, Lynn Jeffries, Alain Lecucq's Compagnie Papiertheatre, New Model Theatre, Beth Peterson, Robert Poulter, Redmoon Theater, Dov Weinstein's Tiny Ninja Theatre, and Paul Zaloom.
