This summer, the Niagara University Theater Department’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! Alexander, as usual is having a “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day” – and Pierre just doesn’t care!
Niagara University Repertory Theatre (N.U.R.T.) returns with fast, furious and fantastically funny children’s tales brought to life by trained actors to delight audiences of all ages.
N.U.R.T. will present a rotating repertoire of free children’s stories outdoors in Lewiston: at Artpark during its “Free Family Saturdays” in July (upper-level sandbox area at 1 and 3 p.m. July 6-27); and in the Leary Theatre in the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre on the NU campus at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursdays, July 11-25 and Aug. 1-15).
Reservations are not required.
N.U.R.T. cast and crew members include NU theater students Samantha Carocci, Ashton Decaro, Spencer Dick, Alyssa Garmone, Audrey Grout, Clare Heron, Marley Judd, Tyler Olson, Anika Pace and Krista Wander.
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 3-12, and we ask that children are always accompanied by an adult.”
