September 13, 2016

Father Goose's Tales Marin Theatre CompanyThis fall, Marin Theatre Company (MTC) kicks off its 2016–2017 Family Series with Father Goose's Tales. In this production, Mother Goose has taken the day off and Father Goose must take over her duties, including storytelling! Father Goose's Tales is written and performed by Jim Napolitano, who brings the nursery rhymes, stories, and songs to life through innovative shadow puppetry, and is ideal for children ages 4 to 8.

Father Goose's Tales is only the first offering in MTC's fantastic 2016–2017 Family Series. In October, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book will come to life on stage (best for ages 6 and up), and in November you can experience an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's tale The Snow Queen (ages 9 and up). Finally, in February, the classic fable Hare and Tortoise will recount the greatest race on earth (ages 4 and up). MTC will even offer a sensory friendly performance of Hare and Tortoise for young people in the autism spectrum on March 4.
