The Cedar Rapids Public Library is always excited to share our space with entertaining music and theatre performances, especially when they are brought to us by local partners. This month we have several opportunities to check out the amazing performances happening in Cedar Rapids.
Join us Saturday, November 8, for two fun-filled opportunities:
- 10:30 am–Playtime Poppy Presents: “Honk Jr” in Whipple Auditorium
- 2:00 pm–Washington High School will do teaser performance of their upcoming musical “West Side Story” at the downtown library
Sunday, November 23, from 2 – 3:30 pm, join us for a special performance by the Funky Renegades Dance Team in Whipple Auditorium. See the latest hip-hop line dances with this fun dance group from Marion. Then learn them! Audience participation is part of the program.
Monday, November 24, join us at 1 pm for a one-time performance of “Romeo and Juliet” by WCP’s Black Hawk Children’s Theatre in Whipple Auditorium. In this play: Romeo and his crew are up to no good when they crash the party of their rivals, the Capulets. Little does young Montague know that one escapade leads to love with Juliet. This encounter sets up a series of events spiraling to a tragic ending for this star-crossed pair. With passion and poetry, we share Shakespeare’s timeless tale of young love that brings unity to fighting factions. Recommended for upper elementary and middle school students and their families.
