Niagara University Repertory Theatre Presents free children’s theater at NU and Artpark
This summer, NU Theatre’s 40 year tradition of entertaining children and families with its N.U.R.T. storytelling troupe continues. Here comes Lily with her purple plastic purse! And Alexander, as usual is having a “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day…” and Pierre just doesn’t care! Yes, Niagara University Repertory Theatre (N.U.R.T.) is back and better than ever. Our fast, furious, and fantastically funny children’s tales brought to life by trained actors will delight audiences of all ages.
N.U.R.T., will present a rotating repertoire of free children’s stories outdoors in the Village of Lewiston at Artpark during its Free Family Saturdays in July. N.U.R.T. will perform there near the upper level sandbox area on the following Saturdays at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.: July 9, 16, 23 and 30. Reservations are not required.
The N.U.R.T. troupe will also perform every Thursday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m on July 28, Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25. *NEW LOCATION* N.U.R.T. will be presented in the multi-purpose room, lower level Gallagher Center on the N.U. campus. Reservations are not required.
Amanda Lytle Sharpe, adjunct theater professor and N.U.R.T. director said, “Our free children’s theater performances will include about 40 minutes of children’s stories in rotation. The production is fun for the whole family, but is especially appropriate for children ages three – 12 and we ask that children are always accompanied by an adult.”
