The Paper Bag Players, America’s longest-running theater for children, brings us HERE WE GO! a family-friendly hour of new and old sketches featuring hilarious stories, lovable characters, original music, on-stage painting, and signature paper and cardboard sets and costumes. Audiences young and young-at-heart join the fun: laughing, singing, up on their feet and dancing!

A chair with a mind all its own refuses to be sat upon. A group of trees, with a little help from the audience and their very own angel, discover how to outsmart a woodchopper. A king raises a baby dragon named Two-Teeth to become a fine, noble friend, with a cardboard castle complete with drawbridge and a celebratory fireworks display! In The First Day of School, three children of very different temperaments sing their feelings about the start of a new school year. With vivid paint and lively song, Zymillaquixar, brings us straight out of the galaxy to an undiscovered planet where our astronauts meet a sweet little alien with a sense of humor. These are just a few of the playful flights of imagination in The Paper Bag Players’ joyous journey: HERE WE GO!
