"Wild Thing" play a real theater-going experience at the Children's Aid Society's Philip Coltoff Center
This spring at the Philip Coltoff Center, theater-going children and adults alike were enthralled by the sight of a young-at-heart dad dragged off by monsters for a dose of discipline. The play, "Wild Thing" by Resident Playwright Monica Flory, was put on by The New Acting Company, The Children's Aid Society's theater company and school soon to celebrate its 10 year anniversary.
Inspired by the well-loved children's book "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak, this play was well suited for children ages 4 through Adult. The costumes and staging just added to the fun as Rohana Elias-Reyes from nytheatre.com said, "The New Acting Company takes producing for kids seriously; they don't skimp on lighting, costumes, sound and set and this creates a real theatergoing experience." This is just the latest installment from The New Acting Company, which specializes in exciting productions for families, including "The Jungle Book", "Sideways Stories from Wayside School" & "Alice In Wonderland" just a few favorites from previous seasons. The New Acting Company, created, founded and lead by Artistic Director, Stephen Michael Rondel is a fun, safe and creative place for students of all ages to explore the world of acting.
