2024-2025 Fitton Family Fridays series announced

Hamilton (OH) – The Fitton Center for Creative Arts announces its 2024-2025 Fitton Family Fridays series.

Designed specifically for children to enjoy the wonder of live performing arts, the Fitton Family Fridays series also makes for a multi-generational experience with parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins and friends. We offer complimentary kid-friendly snacks and beverages before each show and kick off the season with Kids Opening Night event complete with red carpet and paparazzi.

Our friends from the Lane Library will be on hand for many shows this season, too, as we aim to assist young theatergoers in becoming lifelong readers by getting them registered for a library card.

Dress as your favorite characters from the Hundred Acre Wood or go formal to celebrate Kids Opening Night before the show.

-        THE HUNGRY, HUNGRY BOOKWORM (River City Puppets) - 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 4, 2024The library has a bookworm gobbling up all the delicious stories right out of the books.
