Anti-bullying Summit - Oct. 26th

Kaleidoscope Theatre will be participating in a state-wide anti-bullying conference in October. Kaleidoscope is partnering with the RI Attorney General's Office, Horizon Enterprises (Strategies for Success), PAVE (Partnership to Address Violence through Education), and CABINS (Committee Against Bullying In Schools) to make this worthwhile event a reality. The members of the Rhode Island Anti-bullying Summit Planning Committee are committed to engage a unified effort on measures the entire state of Rhode Island can take to prevent, control, and eradicate bullying, intolerance, and violence in our cities, towns, and schools. Each city and town in Rhode Island has been asked to send representatives to this event... check out the planning committee's website as we get closer to the summit to see if your town has stepped up to the plate and made a commitment to end bullying in your community.

This Week at RIC - RAPUNZEL!

Rapunzel is a magical musical based upon the famous fairytale where a young girl is kept in a tower by a comical and bumbling witch and the only way in is by climbing Rapunzel's beautiful and extremely long hair.
This enchanting adaptation closely follows the classic and timeless tale we all know and love. Lovely and lively songs create a mood of enchantment and romance as Rapunzel meets her true love and is rescued from her tower with help from the audience. It is a delightful experience the entire family will enjoy and remember!

Tickets for this Tuesday's performance are still available for the advanced $10 price. All you need to do is call the RIC Box Office today (Monday) between 10am and 4pm. See you Tuesday!

Pocahontas tomorrow - FREE!!!

Kaleidoscope will be performing “Pocahontas” on Saturday, August 14th at 4pm. This event is free and open to the public courtesy of the Roger Williams National Memorial in Downtown Providence. The memorial will be hosting this event outside near the historic site of Roger Williams’ house. Bring a blanket, pack some snacks, and join us for a wonderful evening! (There will be a Providence Waterfire after the performance.) The Memorial is located at 282 North Main Street in Providence, RI.

Our version of “Pocahontas” is historically accurate and follows the life of Pocahontas from when she meets John Smith and the English colonists, to her marriage to John Rolfe, and her journey to England.

Come join Pocahontas as she teaches the audience about preserving nature and respecting the circle of life!
