The newest theater venue in Auburn is the lawn of Seymour Library! The library will host “Theater on the Lawn” at 11 a.m. every Saturday, June 22 through July 13, with performances by the Merry-Go-Round Youth Theatre. The event is part of Seymour Library’s summer reading program for children, “Dig Into Reading.” The performances will feature children’s stories, music, and activities for children. Each week will feature a different aspect of the “Dig Into Reading” theme:
June 22: Dig Into Reading with Dinosaurs, featuring the book “Daniel’s Dinosaurs” by Mary Carmine, and a visit by a T-rex and a stegosaurus! Children will have the chance to create their own dinosaur characters and tell a dinosaur story.
June 29: Dig Into Reading with Gardening, featuring the books “How the Groundhog’s Garden Grew” and “One Potato, Two Potato.” Children will plant their own mini-garden.
July 6: Dig Into Reading with Worms, featuring the books “Diary of a Worm” and “Yucky Worms.” We'll also have guitar music and a rousing game of Wiggle Worm.
July 13: Dig Into Reading with Rocks, featuring the book “Everybody Needs a Rock.” Children will go on a hunt to find their own special rock and make a pet rock!
performances are free, and registration isn’t needed. The series is funded by a
grant from the Rosen Library Fund.
