Carnival Extravaganza Opening Night Event for Seussical! - Columbia SC Moms Blog - Columbia Children's Theatre

Join the Columbia SC Moms Blog at The Columbia Children’s Theatre and experience the highly entertaining and family-friendly productions both parents and kids in the Midlands have been raving about! Known as the premiere theatre for families and young audiences, they are proving this reputation accurate once again with their upcoming performance of Seussical! And the best part is, it’s a show both parents AND kids will enjoy!

But it’s more than your typical show … we’ve gone all out to bring you a carnival style, preshow event centered around the theme of the show with tons of fun for all ages!

Prior to the Performance, Enjoy Themed, Preshow Activities!

We’ll have plenty of activities for kids to enjoy before the show begins…

This one-of-a-kind event will bring elements of the play into fun activities beforehand. We don’t want to spoil the fun, but think carnival style games and entertainment, bright colors, arts and crafts, kid-approved favorites geared towards all skill levels (even mom and dad can participate!). And did we mention prizes??

The Little Gym, known as the world’s premier experiential learning and physical development center for children ages four months through 12 years, will also be there with interactive activities your kids will love. Their programs offer a positive learning environment with creative opportunities for your child to try new things and build self-confidence, all with a grin that stretches from ear to ear.

We’ll also have the talented facepatiners from Bedazzled Unicorn Designs on hand to create custom designs from a wide selection of carnival and every day favorites. Then take advantage of our photo area full of fun props! Our professional photographer will be there to capture every moment! Speaking of dressing up…

Dress the Part and Win Big {+ Giveaways}!

Come outfitted in carnival attire or your favorite Seuss character. We’ll hold our infamous costume contest where prizes will be awarded for best dressed for several different categories during the evening — youth, teen, group — so go all out! The winner will receive… (We can’t give away ALL the details! But trust us, it’s something worth waiting for!) We’ll also be handing out raffle tickets for your chance to win several giveaways from local businesses.

And that’s not all…

Delicious Food and Theatre Inspired Treats

So. Much. Food. PDQ, one of Columbia’s newest and favorite options for fresh, hand-breaded chicken and homemade dressings will be providing endless trays of tenders (including grilled), yummy apple slices with toffee dip … and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

We’ll also have custom cupcakes from TnT Sweets, a delicious local baker whose flavors are out of this world! They’ll have a spread of their best options and designs for each guest to feast on. And before you find your seat, grab a bag of buttery popcorn to enjoy with the show.

Meet the Cast

After the show, stick around to meet the cast! Photo opportunities will be available, as well as autograph signing, so be sure to keep your playbill handy! It’s going to be a night you truly don’t want to miss!
