You’re never too young to love theater!
Hickory Dickory Dock
A play about time, chimes and rhymes for the very young, created by Corinna Rezzelle and Doyle Ott
For children six months to four years
As you may be aware, the Governor of California, Alameda County Public Health Department, and City of Oakland have all recently issued orders and recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19 outbreak. To protect the most vulnerable populations, they ask that select gatherings be cancelled or postponed. To adhere to these guidelines, Children’s Fairyland is in the process of rescheduling the following events: Theatre for the Very Young’s Hickory Dickory Dock and Turn the Page! children’s book festival.
What to Expect at a Theatre for the Very Young Show
Interaction: Talk to the actors, join in song and dance, and touch or use various objects. Children are encouraged to sit on the floor or in their grownups’ laps so they can be ready to stand, move, and engage with the actors as the show unfolds!
All senses engaged: Colorful props to see and touch. Familiar melodies and new sounds to hear. And possibly even something interesting to smell.
Age-appropriate experiences: Simple stories. Engaging characters. We create experiences that reflect how very young children explore the world around them – moment by moment.
You should know: Our shows take place in a quiet, softly lit, and climate-controlled performance space and include admission to Children’s Fairyland so families can wander, eat lunch, and play before and/or after the show. Audience size is small and content is dialed in to the unique early developmental needs of children aged six months to four years.
