Special to 1812Blockhouse
The Renaissance Theatre has announced the second of its Teddy Bear Concerts in the 2021-2022 Mechanics Bank Education Series.
Entitled The Carnival of the Animals, the concert features an engaging original script by Michael Thomas, accompanied by the classic The Carnival of the Animals music by French composer, Camille Saint Saens. The performance will be held on Sunday, February 6 at 2:30 PM on the main stage at the Renaissance Theatre, located at 138 Park Avenue West, Mansfield, Ohio. The sensory-friendly concert marks the return of the popular live, indoor concert experiences for young audiences and their families, which were put on hold due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The story of The Carnival of the Animals will take place on the stage of the Renaissance Theatre with audience members sitting on the stage alongside the performers for an up-close and personal experience.
Geared toward children ages 2-10, each Teddy Bear Concert features audience participation, interactive storytelling with local actors, and an array of fun music featuring Mansfield Symphony musicians. Small audience sizes, lights up, and low sound levels, as well as safe sensory spaces allow audience members with autism to be accommodated at this performance.
Tickets are just $5 each, and are on sale at the Renaissance Box Office, via phone at 419-522-2726, and online at https://bit.ly/CarnivalTBCPR
This performance has limited tickets available. Additional support for the Teddy Bear concerts comes from Nationwide Children’s, the Ohio Arts Council, and from Sharon Granter, in memory of her late husband, Don.
