Kids Summer Activity in Atlanta - The Alliance Theater show The Dancing Granny
My son and I have seen numerous shows at the Alliance Theater and we have never been disappointed. The Alliance is currently undergoing a renovation and has taken the show on the road. The first show of the 2017-18 Alliance on the road season is The Dancing Granny, based on the book by Newbury Honor winner, Ashley Bryan. We are excited about seeing this show because we’ve already visited the exhibit of Mr. Bryan’s work that is at the High Museum through January 2018. The Dancing Granny is a family friendly one act play that opened on June 11th at Olgethrope University. The Dancing Granny is the story of how Anase the spider, a character well known in African folklore, tries to trick Granny into dancing away from her grandson so that he can steal her vegetables. His plan is thwarted when he gets caught up in dancing himself!
This show will be especially fun for us because my mother is going to see it with us, so my son may very well have his own dancing granny before it is all said and done! The show is running until July 16th. Tickets are currently available for the showing at The Galloway School until July 2nd and then moves to my alma mater Spelman College July 8th through July 16th. Tickets are $15.00 for adults, $8 for children 6-17 and free for children 5 and under. You can purchase your tickets for the show here.
We can’t wait to see the show and hope that you and your family take the opportunity to see this unique performance by The Alliance Theater!
