Kidstock! presents “Onstage with Max & Suzy,” a live interactive theater performances for ages 3 and up that dramatically combines familiar titles with creative substitutions. Max & Suzy are best friends who codirect a theater troupe of kids on their street, but can never agree on which play to produce. Audience members get “in on the act” when their friends don’t show up for rehearsal as our young playwrights learn to play right and share their imagination up onstage for all to enjoy. Sponsored by the Milton Library Foundation. Appropriate for any over the age of 3!
WHERE: Milton Public Library
WHEN: Aug 6th @ 7:00PM
