Storyland Theatre will present The Courtship of Senorita Florabella, with 12 school shows Jan. 28-31 and a family matinee on Feb. 1 at Imperial Theatre.

Storyland Theatre has been introducing young audiences to live theater for more than two decades.

“In 25 years, we’ve had 573,263 people attend our performances,” Barbara Feldman, the executive director of Storyland Theatre, said at the beginning of the 26th season.

Productions are for pre-kindergarten through seventh-grade audiences during the school day, with a family matinee to cap the performance week.

In The Courtship of Senorita Florabella, Don Juan wants to win Florabella for his own, but to do that, he must be an excellent swordsman and defeat Señor Gazpacho, the Bandito, Feldman explained. But there is a problem … Don Juan is a terrible swordsman.

Senorita Florabella school shows will be at 9:30 and 10:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, Jan. 28-31.

School show tickets are $5 each; however, there are special rates available based on need. Teachers and chaperones are admitted free. Reservations are required for school shows by calling (706) 736-3455.

To help teachers integrate their Storyland Theatre field trip into their curriculum, the theater troupe provides a guide that meets state standards in both Georgia and South Carolina, Feldman said.

A family matinee will be at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1. Tickets are $6. Active-duty military with ID and their families are admitted free.

Hansel and Gretel will be staged April 1-5. For more details, see storylandtheatre.org.

Where are the performances.

A check of the website reveals "all performances at the Imperial Theater".
It would have been nice to include this in the article.
