Funtastic children’s theatre...
At Lincoln performing Arts Centre (LPAC) we really try hard to bring new fantastic and engaging children’s theatre into Lincoln. The first experience of theatre is a magical one and always a memory that is cherished; which is why we take time to choose fun, immersive and original shows for children at LPAC.
It all starts this season with our POP OUT Festival. The festival runs throughout September and October and aims to take theatre out of the venue and into new, exciting spaces. There are some really exciting and breath-taking performances for families this year. Be prepared to be wowed at the phenomenal street theatre with Block and Urban Astronaut 29-30th September. In addition to this our children’s show this year at POP OUT is How To Spot an Alien a silly and out-of-this-world adventure that follows Jelly and JonJo as they find out their Aunt… is an alien! This event is FREE for the whole family to attend as it is a part of our Fun Palace celebrations that day, so make sure to come along.
Later this season we are so excited to have the Vienna Festival Ballet bring The Nutcracker to Lincoln. This magical ballet is one of the most famous of all time and is sure to dazzle and surprise you. The Nutcracker tells the story of Clara and her enchanted nutcracker doll. Their adventures see Clara and the Nutcracker combat the Mouse King, and join the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier on a wonderful journey through the glistening Land of Snow to a kingdom made entirely of sweets.
This show is visually stunning and an enchanting introduction to ballet for a young audience. Its story is well known, easy to follow and ever so captivating. It’s a great night for all the family to enjoy and is definitely an unmissable event. The Nutcracker also has a Family Ticket Offer available so we recommend booking in advance.
Going into the autumn season, we are continuing to celebrate our 10th year anniversary. The year so far has been a big year of extraordinary theatre and show-stopping events within the community. We have many other wonderful family shows to come this season, including Tall Stories’ The Snail and the Whale, and our fabulous Christmas productions Rapunzel and Penguins! Penguins! Penguins! We are inspired to continue to bring great theatre to the heart of Lincoln and can’t wait to have you along on this brilliant journey!
