Children’s Theatre of Charlotte Presents Two January Special Events:

“The Best of Omimeo” and Grey Seal Puppets’ “A Tangle of Tales”  

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte is thrilled to welcome two Special Events from Charlotte-based artists to the stage of the Wachovia Playhouse at ImaginOn in January.  

For 30 years, the Omimeo Mime Theatre has offered audiences a cornucopia of creativity and imaginative theatre. In “The Best of Omimeo” (Jan. 16-18) Hardin Minor, Eddie Williams and the Omimeo regulars will present a special performance featuring favorite vignettes from the Omimeo repertory. Special guests the Fettuccini Brothers, just back from their tour of China , will add to the show with their comedy juggling antics. From circus arts to acrobatics, mime to vaudeville, this show will keep you on the edge of your seat. For ages 5+/Grades K+  

Performance times and dates:

Friday, January 16                     7:30 pm

Saturday, January 17                 11:00 am

Saturday, January 17                 1:00 pm

Sunday, January 18                   2:00 pm (SOLD OUT)  

Another whimsical show from the Grey Seal Puppets, “A Tangle of Tales” (Jan. 31 - Feb. 1) brings three folk tales from around the world to life: ”The Frog Prince” from Germany, “Three Billy Goats Gruff” from Scandinavia and “The Three Little Pigs” from England. Along with these familiar stories, the performance includes charming moments of puppet play. You’ll see a skinny ant dance a jig, “block heads” learning how to get around and the zany “Wobblies” opening the show with an extraordinary ballet choreographed to Kablevsky’s “The Comedian’s Suite.” For ages 3+/Grades PreK+  

Performance times and dates:

Saturday, January 31                 11:00 am
