Authentic Community Theater
Discovery Station will be hosting the Authentic Community Theatre, Inc. for another family-friendly play! Our audiences will see a new twist on the classic tale of Peter Rabbit (an eager helper hoping to work together with those around him to make the garden thrive) and Farmer McGregor (who is unaware and failing at keeping the farm running efficiently). See how teamwork and common ground are used to bring very different characters together to achieve their goals! Bring your children (and children at heart) to be a part of this live interactive performance, complete with actors, music, and costumes!
