(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – The Performing Arts Center is partnering with two local nonprofits in conjunction with the tour of Peg + Cat LIVE! which will perform at the Performing Arts Center on Saturday, February 16 at 4:30 p.m.
Based on the Emmy-winning PBS Kids show PEG + CAT, this totally awesome musical features wild comedy, countless favorite songs from the show, and Peg’s super coolest pal Ramone! When Peg’s Mom asks Peg and Cat to mail some really important letters, they come face to face with a really big dog. Really Big Problem! To solve it, they’ll need math—bar graphs, size comparison, position words, fair sharing, and a whole lot of counting. They’ll also need to count on each other, and the audience too, for their problem to be solved.
Interested families are encouraged to participate in The Tuscarawas County Public Library System’s Take Your Child to the Library Day on Saturday, February 2 at all locations. (Main Library in New Philadelphia, Bolivar, Strasburg, Sugarcreek, and Tuscarawas) Participants can enjoy cookies, crafts, and a chance to win a family four pack of tickets to see Peg + Cat LIVE! No registration for this program is required.
Prior to the performance on February 16, STEAM Centers will have a Pop-Up Museum in the PAC lobby for families to enjoy hands-on fun before they see the show. STEAM Centers is a New Philadelphia based nonprofit whose mission is to provide exciting, educational experiences for children and families. STEAM strives to create interest in science, technology, engineering, art, and music. In providing opportunities to explore integrated approaches to various topics, we are building strong communities, starting with our youngest members.
“We love to partner with other organizations in our community,” explains David Mitchell, general manager of the Performing Arts Center. “Peg + Cat LIVE! offers a natural connection with The Tuscarawas County Public Library System and STEAM Centers and I encourage all families with younger children to become more familiar with both organizations. They are such wonderful assets to our community.”
