Live performances are such a fun way to spend time as a family, and kids can be experience art, theatre and music in ways they may never have before.
Every year, the Great Plains Theatre has a number of different shows and performances, so you can keep going back to your favorite - or keep seeing something new!
You might see the swashbuckling pirates one week, treading the floorboards in a rambunctious physical musical comedy, or it might be an award winning play with rich, fascinating characters that draw you in.
