If you haven’t visited the Eisemann Center for their Family Theatre Series, what are you waiting for? The plays are funny, timely, educational, and are fun for the whole family! For example, Maddi’s Fridge, an endearing story about a friend on a quest to help her friend’s family stock their fridge with food. Based on the book by Lois Brandt, the story draws families and kids into timely issues like food scarcity.

Maddis FridgeIt was a surprise to Sofia when she opened her friend Maddi’s fridge and found only a lone carton of milk, but no other snacks while they were playing. Maddi admitted that her mother did not have money to buy groceries for the family, so Sofia went on a quest to help her friend fill her belly with food, thinking that she won’t be able to run, jump, and play without food. And she’s right, she wouldn’t be! Soon, Sofia’s mom finds out what her daughter is up to, then hops on board helping the family fill their fridge – Maddi’s Fridge. 

This story is just a sample of the delightful storytelling the Eisemann Center brings to families throughout their entire Family Theatre Series. Stories like Pete the Cat, Judy Moody and Stink, and DogMan the Musical are but a few of the great shows coming up this season.
