Drip, Drip Drop: A WATER Adventure

April 23 @ 11:00 am - April 24 @ 3:00 pm

$5 – $10

Conceived and written by UNC Asheville students in the Fall 2021 Theatre for the Very Young (TVY) course, “Drip, Drip Drop: A WATER Adventure” is an interactive and imaginative performance for pre-schoolers and their families. Directed by Lise Kloeppel.

Show Description: Water is all around us. A liquid life force in our blood, sweat and tears that falls from the sky into the ground forming rivers, lakes and oceans. Find out what happens when curiosity transforms a little youngin’ into a tiny water droplet and imagination takes them on a wonder-filled adventure.

What is Theatre for the Very Young?: Theatre for the Very Young combines elements of dramatic play with immersive design to create an interactive and multi-sensory performance experience. Although TVY centers in its creation the aesthetic and developmental needs of children ages 0-5, anyone who wishes to experience the world with a sense of child-like wonder and awe is invited to attend.

Public Performance Dates:
Saturday, April 23rd 11 a.m. & 2 p.m.
Sunday, April 24th 11 a.m. & 2 p.m.
