FREE CHILDREN’S SUMMER PLAYS IN THE PARK AMPHITHEATER
Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site will offer free children’s plays this summer! Apprentice actors from the Flat Rock Playhouse Vagabond School of Drama will perform Rootabaga Express! on Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:15AM, from June 16 to August 13. Rootabaga Express! is based on Carl Sandburg’s series of children’s fiction, called Rootabaga Stories.  The free 30-minute shows are appropriate for all ages and are held rain or shine. For young visitors who attend the program, there is a Rootabaga Junior Ranger program available. Activity sheets will be available at the amphitheater after the play and can be turned in at the Sandburg Home for a limited edition “Rootabaga Ranger” badge.
