A fun outing that teaches your children about empathy, friendship, and doing the right thing… Sounds so good, doesn’t it?

Eisemann Center Maddi's FridgeOn Sunday, October 13 at 2:30pm the Eisemann Center in Richardson brings us Maddi’s Fridge, the first in their 2019 Family Theatre Series. If you’ve never taken your kids to a play before, this would be a great place to start. Live theater is magic! First, the plot:

One day Sofia discovers that her best friend Maddi has no food in her fridge at home. Sofia wants to help her friend, but Maddi makes her promise not to tell anyone. What should Sofia do?

Eisemann Center Maddi's FridgeBased on the book by Lois Brandt, the show is a gentle yet sometimes hilarious exploration of friendship and an approachable introduction to the real-world issue of childhood hunger and food scarcity. The girls live in the same neighborhood and go to the same school, but all is not as it seems. How will Sofia handle the realization that Maddi and her family are struggling?

**The theater has partnered with Network of Community Ministries for this performance – any grocery bag filled with non-perishables and turned in to the Eisemann Center ticket office or Network of Community Ministries will receive a Buy One, Get One Free promo code to the show.**

Any bags of food donated on the day of the performance, will receive a 20% off discount code for the second Eisemann Center Family Theatre Series performance of Pete the Cat on Sunday, November 24.

AND ticket prices start at just $12. I told you this would be a great time to introduce your children to the theater, right? If you’re curious about the Eisemann Center theater experience, check out Nadia’s post about taking her twins.

BONUS: Eisemann Extras is an interactive program (from dance parties to petting zoos) that happens prior to each Family Theatre Series performance. First up, Child at Heart will host a Teddy Bear Picnic prior to the performance of Maddi’s Fridge on October 13. Children will get to stuff an animal with love and fluff to take home or donate to another child in need through the SWAGG program, a Faith Based & Family Oriented Ministry that provides support to foster, adopted and homeless children.  The cost is $10 per Eisemann Extras event per child, or $30 for all 4 events in the series, per child.

 

 

Katie grew up in Dallas and then spent 10 post-college years in Austin, where she and her husband Mick welcomed a daughter and son (in 2011 and 2013). They've since moved to Fort Worth and find it to be quite fun and a great place for kids. Katie is horrible at social media but secretly likes Twitter best. Favorite uses for her phone: reading library books and listening to comedy podcasts. Least favorite uses: making and receiving calls. If you've seen Death Becomes Her or Big Business more than once, you'll be best friends.
