NJ Theatre Alliance’s Stages Festival

Four actors dressed in shabby clothes and aprons pose for a photo huddled over a circular make believe pot. There are two men who each wear mustaches and flat cap hats and hold items overtop the imaginary pot. Two women dressed in aprons and head scarves also hold veggies and utensils over pot.

WheatonArts is excited to be a host site for the New Jersey Theatre Alliance to present the Pushcart Players production:

Stone Soup & Other Stories!

 Free at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, 2022
Located in the Event Center at WheatonArts

Pushcart Players - Stone Soup

FREE and open to the public, this play is 50 to 55 minutes and is appropriate for children in pre-school through fifth grade. This event is part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance 2022 Stages Festival, a state-wide celebration of theatre.

A charming, well-seasoned blend of folk tales from around the world! Stone Soup and Other Stories supports the literacy movement’s emphasis on the joy of reading and provides a starting point for ongoing enjoyment of folk tales in the classroom. Without a doubt, this familiar brew of favorites will delight very young audiences — from age 4 to 94! Dynamic, participatory, and filled with zesty entertainment, Stone Soup is on the gourmet “not to be missed” list for young viewers!

Masks must be worn while indoors at the performance. Disposable masks will be available for audience members who need one. The front row will be placed about 10 feet away from the actors for safety. All Pushcart company members are fully vaccinated with boosters and tested weekly for Covid.

This event is part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance 2022 Stages Festival, made possible by support from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts; Bank of America; The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey; OceanFirst Foundation; New Jersey Historical Commission; and Fund for the New Jersey Blind.
