New play transports kids to ancient Egypt for manners lesson
At Lee Road’s Kultivation Theater, ancient Egypt comes to life through magic, music and dance in a new play that encourages children and families to remember their manners. "Ma'at Is Missing: Deciphering Manners," written and directed by Kulture Kids' Robin Pease, invites audiences to journey with a bumbling archaeologist in search of Ma'at, an Egyptian symbol of civility, compassion and respect.
The play opens at Kultivation Theater, 2134 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, on Aug. 21 at 7 p.m. Opening night audiences are invited to a family-friendly post-show reception in the lobby. Additional performances are Aug. 22, at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Aug. 23, at 3 p.m. Tickets are available at www.kulturekids.org and include a pre-show family arts workshop.
