Runaway Stage presents

March 15, 2011

We LOVE theater– especially if it involves kids. The 24th Street Theater is the home of the Runaway Stage, a theater company performing plays and musicals by kids and for kids (and for adults too). With super reasonable tickets, a show at the Runaway Stage might be just the thing to beat the cabin fever that is setting in due to all the rain this week.

You have a choice of two productions this month. The first is Pigs In Space which runs Saturdays March 19th and 26th at both 12pm and 2pm. Shows are just $8 for general admission and $6 for kids 12 and under!

The second, a musical, Seussical Jr. plays March 22-24 at 7pm and admission is just $10. Here is a little more about Seussical Jr.:

Do you like Green Eggs and Ham and pretty much all the other Dr. Seuss books? Well, from there to here and here to there, funny things are everywhere during this staging of Seussical Jr. Kids and teens from Runaway Stage Productions’ youth workshops will perform this one-act version of the Broadway musical, which still features beloved characters such as Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat and Gertrude McFuzz, and songs like “Oh the Thinks You Can Think”.

The Runaway Stage is located inside the 24th Street Theater at 2791 24th Street and for more information click HERE or call 916.207.1226.

We’ll see you there!


King Arthur, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast Hit the Stage

May 7, 2010

What better to compliment a Beast than a princess? Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella is being performed at the Runaway Stage now through May 23. Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 2PM with admission starting at $15. This performance is appropriate for ages 4 and older. For tickets click here.

The Runaway Stage Presents

March 10, 2010

“Goldilocks and the Misadventures of Mother Goose”

Mother Goose is having a heck of a day. Goldilocks is refusing to be a part of the Three Bears story. Characters from other fairy tales keep popping in and out, and worst of all her goose has disappeared. This is a charming and humorous retelling of the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” It shows how quickly an enemy can become a friend, and the true meaning of family.

I am going to have to find a niece or nephew (or neighbor?!) to take to see this show. Not only is the Storybook Theater presenting this performance for ONLY $5 per ticket, but they do an incredible job with the children’s productions. Entertaining for adults as well.

Showtimes for “Goldilocks and the Misadventures of Mother Goose” are 12PM and 2PM on Saturday March 13, 20 and 27. The Runaway Stage is located at the 24th Street Theater at 2791 24th Street. For more information click here or call 916.207.1226.

We’ll see you there!

What is your all-time favorite children’s tale or nursery rhyme?

Runaway Stage presents…

September 18, 2009

esm-runaway stage

This hilarious original musical comedy written by Ray Fisher gives us a contemporary new slant on a well loved story. A fun-filled afternoon for the whole family.

The Big Bad Wolf “sets the story straight” and shares the real deal behind his victims and their not-so-innocent pasts. This is a perfect way to expose your children to musicals, theater, and a fun twist on a traditional story. The Runaway Stage, a non-profit educational corporation, is presenting this show Saturday, September 19th and 26th.

You can catch the musical the next two Saturdays at noon and 2PM for only $5. You cannotfind a better deal on a musical or a theater production. It’s a better price than a cinema matinee AND supports local actors and the Sacramento playwright responsible for this particular show.

The Runaway Stage is located in the 24th St Theater at 2791 24th St. For more information click here or call 916.207.1226.

Alice in Wonderland

July 3, 2009


I don’t believe it is ever too early to expose children to theater, even if you have to sit in the grass and let your baby crawl around instead of watching the show. Lucky for East Sac Moms, the Runaway Stage’s Storybook Children’s Theater is presenting “Alice in Wonderland” on July 11, 18 and 25. Show times are 12PM and 2PM and admission is only $5!

The Runaway Stage is located at the 24th St. Theater at 2791 24th St. Contact 916.207.1226 with questions.
