Aurora Children’s Playhouse performances

March 22: “The Princess and the Pea, Y’all” by Lee Bryan, “That Puppet Guy”

March 29: “Pirate Goodie & The Magic Chest” by The Story Ship

April 5: “Cinderella” by Wendy Bennett

Assembling the best children’s performers in the region, Aurora Children’s Playhouse will present three fairy-tale performances for families with young children this spring in Gwinnett County.

Lee Bryan, “That Puppet Guy,” returns Saturday, March 22, with the show “The Princess and the Pea, Y’all.”

Poking a little Southern-fried fun at the classic Hans Christian Andersen story with costumed hand puppets, “The Princess and the Pea, Y’all” is a one-of-a-kind adaptation filled with sidesplitting slapstick comedy and witty word play.

One week later, The Story Ship and its creator Sean Driscoll is back for another performance filled with animation, magic and music with “Pirate Goodie & The Magic Chest.”

Finally, on April 5, Wendy Bennett will present her show “Cinderella” at 10 a.m. with puppets, costumes, props and plenty of audience participation.

Each show is about 45 minutes in length, perfect for youngsters’ attention span. Aurora Children’s Playhouse performances are at 10 a.m. on select Saturdays at 128 E. Pike St. in Lawrenceville. All tickets $7 with reservations recommended.
