A Standing Ovation for Savannah Children’s Theatre

If you haven’t taken your kids to a show at  The Savannah Children’s Theatre, then y’all are savannah-childrens-theatre-button-admissing out on one of our local treasures.

Just returned from seeing Sarah Plain and Tall, the Newberry Medal winning story of a widowed farmer, his children and the charming woman who would change their lives forever. It was an engaging and refreshingly simple production – with local talented children playing all the roles. My 3-year-old son talked non-stop about the show the whole way home. 

This is the third production we’ve seen at this amazing theatre at the Crossroads Shopping Center, 2160 E. Victory Drive and all have been hits. While Sarah Plain and Tall isn’t one of the theatre’s typical razzle-dazzle productions with lots of dancing and singing, the roughly 90 minute show has just enough to hold young children’s attention. And it would definitely be a winner with older children.

Shows are  3 PM Sat. and Sun. Oct. 23 and Oct. 24. Tickets $10-$12. 238-9014.

Coming soon to The Savannah Children’s Theatre: a holiday musical production of Scooge and, in January, a Main Stage musical production of Cinderella. Can’t wait!
