Let’s Play at Olympia Family Theater is a theatrical experience you can share with your little one that is full of movement, music, language, sights, and sounds that enhance cognitive development in children 0-5 years.
You can see a new story each month! These interactive shows are under 30 minutes long and are perfect for the very youngest audience members. Performances take place in Olympia Family Theater’s brightly lit lobby, using simple props and costumes to encourage kids to retell the story at home. Giggles are guaranteed!
Each show performs FIVE times a month, typically the first week of the month with a few exceptions. Performances times for this season will be Mondays 10am, Thursdays 10am, Fridays (two performances) 10am and 11:30am, and Saturdays at 10am.
Based in downtown Olympia, Olympia Family Theater is a nonprofit community theater that engages audiences of all ages in performances and programs that entertain and educate. All 2017-18 Let’s Play shows are adapted by Kate Ayers, directed by Hannah Eklund, and performed by beloved local actors.
Olympia Family Theater recognizes TwinStar Credit Union for their generous sponsorship of the entire 2017-18 Let’s Play season!
