UMass Fine Arts Center to host Family Fun Series!

Family Banner

Experience the wonder and excitement of live theater as a snowstorm, Chinese fairytales, and favorite storybook characters as they come to life on stage at the UMass Fine Arts Center (FAC) in Amherst! An affordable way to introduce children to the magic of live performances, the FAC Family Fun Series, happening on select weekday evenings this year at 7:30pm brings families together, spark creativity, and engage the imagination as only a live performance can. It’s not only got great entertainment, but it’s also guaranteed quality family time!

Experience the music of the Civil Rights movement interwoven with spoken word from Dr. King’s recorded speeches in We Shall Overcome: A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Jan 28), or discover another culture with the GuGu Drum Group (Feb 11). Learn how Peter Pan came to be in Finding Neverland (Feb 25), or witness the fun and daring acrobatics of Cirque Flip Fabrique (Mar 18), complete with a blizzard on stage. And of course, who doesn’t want to laugh with the naughtiest wombat in Australia with Monkey Baa Theatre Company production of Diary of a Wombat (Apr 9). 

FAC will have a food truck on the plaza before all family shows and concessions will also have family-friendly options. There are baby changing tables in both restrooms and live monitors in the side lobbies for parents that need to step out of the performance.
