Bobtail Bong Bong: A Monkey's Tale
About Bobtail Bong Bong
InterAct Story Theatre presents the world premiere of a new play made just for early childhood, and you’re invited! "Bobtail Bong Bong: A Monkey’s Tale" is an interactive play where children explore how we can apply elements Character Education and Social Emotional Learning in the way we treat others… even when we are feeling sad, angry, or misunderstood.
Bob the Monkey is the smartest monkey in the land, and they want everyone to know it! Bob wants what they want, and they should be able to get it! But why is everyone mad at Bob? Why is everyone so mean? Bob didn’t do anything! In this interactive theatre forum, children follow Bob’s misadventures and help Bob figure out where they went wrong, and where they could try out Caring, Fairness, and Respect to turn things around. Led by InterAct’s Artistic Director Ali Oliver-Krueger, audience members make suggestions about how Bob could do things differently, watch Bob roleplay out their suggestions to see if Bob can make things better by making better choices. Does it work? What happens next?
Come early with your kids for crafts and pre-show activities, and stick around afterwards for a Meet-and-Greet with the actors--it's a great time to get autographs, take pictures, and tell us your favorite part of the show! The Pre-show activities table opens 30 minutes before the performance.
