The Northeast Children's Theatre Company, a Westport nonprofit organization focused on professional theatrical programming for young audiences and families, has announced a new partnership with the Fairfield Theatre Company.
In the spring, Northeast Children's Theatre will inaugurate its seasonal residency at Fairfield Theatre Company's StageOne venue with a shortened season of plays and musicals geared toward young audiences, according to a release.
The inaugural season will begin in February with a new adaptation of Aesop's fable, "The Tortoise and the Hare," a musical comedy that premiered last spring at Stamford's Kweskin Theatre.
In March, the company will present a drama highlighting two stories from the Holocaust in "And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank," written by James Still.
In May, the season will end with "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."
Founded in 2010 by Morgan Weitz and longtime Westport resident Tyler Paul, the Northeast Children's Theatre Company is dedicated to arts education programming and family-friendly entertainment through the specialized genre of children's theater.
Season ticket sales will begin in December.
