Austin's Pollyanna Theatre Presents: Pattern Nation: Waves

With this weekend being Mother's Day, why not enjoy a family-friendly theater performance that you can enjoy right alongside your kiddos? Austin's own Pollyanna Theatre will be performing the play Pattern Nation: Waves, bringing back popular characters from Emily Cicchini. The play is designed for children, specifically preschool-aged children up through second grade, with a focus on supporting pre-literacy skills in that age group. This wonderful story follows the fun adventure of four friends as they explore the many types of waves found around them in nature. The show opens with Cyan Circle waiting for his cousin, Amber Oval to arrive for their regular play date. However, fun soon erupts when Amber brings along her friends Jade Triangle and Pinky Rombus. Soon the four find themselves on amazing imaginative adventures at the beach, beside a very still lake hosted by a mermaid, and in the world of secret spies who are investigating invisible sound and light waves.
The show will take place at the Rollins Studio Theatre at the Long Center for the Performing Arts (located at 701 West Riverside Drive, Austin, Texas 78704), and will feature the delightful and talented cast of Central Texas's most popular children's production company, Pollyanna Theatre.
