CenterPoint Legacy Theatre
Every September for the past 6 years, this wise adage has come full circle with the transformation of a theater into an enchanted castle to celebrate the wonder of fairytales. CenterPoint’s desire is to reach out to the community to say thank you for their support, to celebrate the messages of bravery, wisdom, courage, love and family in these tales and to promote the rich lessons and adventures found in the pages of a book. The festival is also an opportunity to give back. Within the enchantment of these 2 days, you can find a “Bibbidi Bobbidi Books” where children can bring a book to donate to a child in need of books and a “Wishing Well” where they can make a card to go with the book detailing why they love to read. Each year, the festival sponsors a dozen “Make A Wish” children at the Daddy-Daughter Ball, Princess Tea Parties and Wizarding 101. . There is also a performance by the theater’s resident “Friend to Friend”, a performing group for children and young adults with “remarkabilities”. CenterPoint Legacy Theatre will be holding their 7th annual Fairytale Festival Sept.13th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sept.14th from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. There are a variety of activities available at the festival, many of which are free. Live performances and interactive storytelling will be found in the “Great Storytelling Tent”, which will hold some new surprises for 2019. Also new this year is: • Hero’s Quest Awaiting the children will be face painting, a bouncy castle and slide, Fairytale Carnival games, Build-a-Castle, Neverland Pirate Adventure and a variety of fairy tale crafts including fairy houses, Princess make-overs,wand making and many others. In addition, the bottom floor of the theater will host the “Once Upon a Time Participlay” where children will act out a fairytale fantasy complete with costumes.
