Play’N Around Theatre Company always brings a great experience for our family audiences. Their shows are interactive, engaging and entertaining for the adults, as well as for the children in attendance. Play’N Around Theatre’s characters Penelope Jane and her quirky friends really get their messages across, along with a few laughs. Even though the program is designed for a school and theatre audiences, I would recommend it to other Environmental Education facilities as a fun and effective learning experience for all ages! Thank you Play'N Around Theatre Company for an exceptional experience.

As a Behavior Specialist and trainer, I think Play’N Around Theatre Company’s programs are excellent! Their characters are funny as well as relatable to this generation of youth. The repetition of their plays central messages were easy for the kids to remember and are truly empowering! I would suggest there presentations to all agencies working with children in any capacity!
