The Paper Bag Players, Free at The Kumble Theater This Friday
The Paper Bag Players have been performing for kids in New York at least since I was going to elementary school in Queens in the 1970's. (Since 1958, actually. - Ed.) Their latest production - Whoop-De-Doo! - is being performed this Thursday and Friday at the Kumble Theater at Long Island University's Brooklyn campus. That's the good news. The better news is that the theater is offering FREE tickets for the Friday afternoon show.
According to our source, Whoop-Dee-Doo is "a fun and interactive play with music and dance for young people."
There is a show this Thursday, February 3 at 10:30 AM and shows on Friday, February 4 at 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM, but the afternoon show on Friday is the one that we've heard can be seen for free. Reserve tickets for that show by emailing [email protected] or by calling the Box Office at (718) 488-1624. I can't figure out if the other shows are also free - either on the Kumble website or the Paper Bag Players' website - so those might be free also. If those shows are more convenient for you, it is probably worth a call.
