Carnival of the Animals - Saturday Matinee
Sat, May 27, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT
On the very morning after he turned eight years old, young Noah Nathaniel Norris waits for his piano lesson to begin. His birthday had been exciting, full of presents, games and cake. In fact, one special present had kept him awake all night – his mother promised after his lesson he could go to the pet store and choose any pet that he wanted!
Alas, when young Noah’s sour old piano teacher, Mr. Baggers, refuses to let him out of practicing his scales, the rollicking adventure begins. Buoyant melodies and vivid daydreams whisk him away to a make-believe world of zoological wonder....
Photos are NOT allowed in our theatre, so please do not attempt to take them. We do not care if they are for your facebook page or for twitter. Taking photos in the theatre lobby is sometimes allowed, but the ushers can be really mean about it. Forget trying to impress the ushers with "who you know", or "who you are", as there is a famous story about when the ushers told George Lucas (of Star Wars fame) to stop taking photos before the show started. After this frosty reception, do not expect to see Star Wars The Musical anytime soon.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
For the safety of the dancers and protection of our choreography, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEOGRAPHY ALLOWED. People violating this will be asked to leave. Leave your phone in the car, your purse or pocket.
No outside food is permitted. There will be a flower stand to buy your favorite dancer a bouquet and a concession stand to buy a light snack to wet your whistle during intermission.
We ask that you not allow the children in attendance to use electronic game devices during the show. The light from the screen is distracting.
How do I enter the Black Box theatre?
Enter the Palm Springs High School campus from Ramon Road. Walk past the entrance to the front of the Auditorium and through the iron double gates. The Black Box is the first building on your left.
If I’m running late can I still get into the show?
Please arrive on time. Due to the layout of the theater we cannot seat late attendees until intermission. You will not be permitted into the theatre and there is no standing room area. There are NO refunds.
