The Asheville Area Arts Council’s Kids Tixx program provides access to wonderful cultural experiences not always in the budget for some of Buncombe County’s families, while also supporting our local arts presenters! Kids Tixx provides free admission for one child and one adult to local arts and cultural events, exhibits, and more.
We believe that creative experiences are vitally important to quality of life, and inspire and bring joy to young hearts. Cultural experiences also bring families closer together, and provide a moment out of time that become meaningful memories. For some, the Kids Tixx program may one of the few art related experiences that a child will have all year. We appreciate our donors, who are willing to reach out and nurture joy in our community in this way, while also supporting our worthy arts presenters.
The Asheville Area Arts Council is currently offering Kids Tixx to the following event:
Imago Theatre’s FROGZ
Diana Wortham Theatre
Friday, February 14, 2014 8:00pm
The New York Times raved, “A mastery of mime, dance and acrobatics.” From its adaptations of classics to excursions into vaudevillian existentialism, Imago’s creators have been called alchemists, magicians, theatrical animators, and physical comedians. In FROGZ, comedic amphibians, acrobatic larvae, circus boulders, and metamorphosing humans take the stage in works which tantalize your senses and intellect. Sophisticated, universally appealing, and highly entertaining for all ages, FROGZ is an extraordinary evening at the theatre.
Asheville based Red Herring Puppet’s ELECTRICITY!
Diana Wortham Theatre
Saturday February 22, 2014 11:00am
Audiences learn how the discovery of Earth’s invisible magnetic force and static electricity led to a useful understanding of electromagnetic energy. Puppets portray historical figures and famous scientists who employ the process of careful observation and build on each others knowledge, to make related discoveries in various parts of the world resulting in the invention of the lightning rod, the battery, the electrical generator, and the electric light bulb. The show explains sustainable energy solutions such as wind mills, solar power, and conservation.
