Random Acts of Silliness -  Family Improv Show

Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10:30 AM

From the creative minds behind the Gnome Roam and its gnome pop-up a few months ago at our library comes a fun family improv show on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10:30 AM! GoGo, one of Random Acts of Silliness' monster mascots, invites you to The Magic Monster Show, where you can participate in the magical mayhem of stories being made up on the spot! In this high-energy slapstick show, their team of improvisers will bring your ideas to life: flying octopi, edible rainbows and singing monkeys? You never know what will happen when kids call the shots! This show is best suited for a K-5 audience, but all are welcome.
