InterAct Story Theatre presents FREE performances and events for kids and families with the Wheaton Family Theatre Series!
Alex and Olmsted’s Milo the Magnificent is a highly engaging puppet show about an aspiring magician. This wordless comedy, inspired by turn of the century vaudeville entertainers, is as highly physical as it is charming. Using stunningly innovative puppetry, Milo presents a variety of magic tricks which don’t always go as planned. Milo the Magnificent, was awarded a 2017 Jim Henson Foundation Grant, a Greenbelt Community Foundation Grant, and received an excellent mention in the New York Times. Alex Vernon and Sarah Olmsted Thomas are also proud company members of Happenstance Theater with whom they have created 10 productions since 2012. Great for all ages!
There will be two performances at Highland Elementary School, 3100 Medway Street, 20902: Saturday, October 16 at 11 a.m. and Sunday, October 17 at 2 p.m. All performances are free and open to the public!

The health and safety of our community–especially that of our children–is very important to us. We will be arranging seating for social distancing, requiring mask use, and checking for proof of vaccination or negative covid test results at the door. For this event, everyone over 12 years old must show proof of vaccination or proof of negative Covid test results within 72 hours to enter.  Masks are required for everyone age 3 and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult who is vaccinated or has a negative Covid test result.

FREE and open to the public.

This production is supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County Government and the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Additional in-part funding provided by the Maryland State Arts Council (msac.org), Nora Roberts Foundation, and by the generous support of a legion of donors and partners.  Support also provided by a grant from the Greater Washington Community Foundation.
