Founded by theatre professionals Alan Ostroff and Anna Roberts Ostroff, an Annapolis native, Infinity Theatre Company is reaching out to the children of the community by bringing the production of "Stories—Live and in Person" to the Children's Theatre of Annapolis in May with shows on May 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd. The price is $35 per child for show and workshop. Parents and guardians attend for free. A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to the Children's Theatre of Annapolis. "My Way", a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra and "Little Shop of Horrors" round out Infinity's Summer Season.

"Stories—Live and In Person" is performed by a professional New York City cast. Show is followed by a one-hour workshop where children learn about movement, theatre games, and improvisation.

“Thank you, 'Stories – Live and In Person' was fantastic...I believe this may have been some of the loftiest theatre to which our young students have ever been exposed. Thank you for providing our students with a rich theatrical & educational experience.

As part of its mission to enrich Annapolis with professional New York City theatre, Infinity Theatre Company is reaching out to the children of the community by bringing the production of "Stories – Live and In Person" to Children’s Theatre of Annapolis in May. Infinity Theatre Company was founded by theatre professionals Alan Ostroff and Anna Roberts Ostroff, who is an Annapolis native.

Families are encouraged to attend "Stories – Live and In Person" – there is no charge for parents or guardians. Children who attend will receive a free ticket to one of Infinity’s mainstage shows.

A Q&A and a one-hour workshop follow the 45-minute children’s show – both led by Infinity’s Director of Education, Robin Cannon, who stars in the show. Children will learn theatre games, movement, and improvisation. The fun-filled two-hour experience teaches important lessons to children about listening, sharing, and being attentive audience members.

The show is broken into three short segments. In the first of the three comedic stories, a great Shakespearean actor must teach a spotlight-stealing little girl in the audience how to behave at a show. In the second story, the audience must listen carefully to keep from being tricked by a zany criminal mastermind named Willy the Fork. In the third and last story, two nerdy scientists competing to find the secrets of space and time enlist the audience to help decide their fate.

"Stories – Live and In Person" was written by Mr. Ostroff. It was seen by 2,700 children in New York City in the fall of 2010, in a tour presented by Arts for All, Inc. The play shows children the timeless power of live theatre, and engages their imaginations with the energy of being in the same room as the actors – live and in person.

As quoted from Rebekah Slotnick, a teacher at The Renaissance School in Queens, New York, “Thank you, [Stories – Live and In Person] was fantastic...I believe this may have been some of the loftiest theatre to which our young students have ever been exposed. The students were thoroughly entertained and learned a lot...Thank you for providing our students with such a rich theatrical and educational experience.”

To help further an appreciation of theatre, Infinity is giving any child who attends "Stories – Live and In Person" a free ticket to one of its summer mainstage shows: "My Way", A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra or "Little Shop of Horrors".

"Stories – Live and In Person" is most appropriate for ages 5 – 10, and will be presented 9:30am – 11:30am on the following dates:

Saturday, May 14
Sunday, May 15
Saturday, May 21
Sunday, May 22

Children’s Theatre of Annapolis
1661 Bay Head Rd.
Annapolis, MD 21409

The price is $35.00 per child, for show and workshop. Parents and guardians may attend for free. Infinity donates a portion of all ticket sales to the non-profit Children’s Theatre of Annapolis.
