Shows are set for April 9 and April 16 at the Beaverton Library



Knuffle BunnyAmong life’s many entertainment options, live theater is hard to beat — but it’s not always affordable.

Beaverton Civic Theatre, however, is doing its best to address that one shortcoming during the month of April.

BCT is launching its new Theatre for Young Audiences series in April, a series featuring two shows (one in April and the second in October) with tickets on sale for only $5 per person for all ages. This program is presented in partnership with the Beaverton City Library’s Youth Services Division.

“We’re super excited to be partnering with the Beaverton City Library to bring this service to the citizens of Beaverton at an affordable price for families,” said Amanda Clark, a Beaverton Civic Theatre board member since 2011.

BCT’s April show is “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical,” a heart-warming and hilarious musical created by six-time Emmy Award winner Mo Willems and Grammy Award-winning composer Michael Silversher.

Performances of “Knuffle Bunny” are set for 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. April 9 and April 16 at the Beaverton City Library Auditorium, 12375 S.W. Fifth St. in Beaverton.

“Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical” is based on Willems’ beloved Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale,” now turned into a musical filled with adventure, song and dancing laundry.

The Beaverton community is also invited to join in a free “Knuffle Bunny” party from 4 to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 31, at the Beaverton City Library.

In addition to “Knuffle Bunny’s” fun, this series meets some the Beaverton Library’s strategic goals, aiming to inspire future artists and cultivate patrons and donors of the arts. The reduced ticket price of $5 for all ages will help BCT and the Beaverton City Library reach families of all income levels in Beaverton and Washington County, that goal necessitated by the fact that over one-third of the children in the Beaverton School District rely on free and reduced lunches, and that number is even higher in the schools closest to the library, ranging from 55 to 80 percent.

The second show in the Young Audiences series is “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” with performances of that show set for 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Oct. 22 and Oct. 29.
