America’s longest-running theater for children, The Paper Bag Players’ latest show HERE WE GO! is a rollicking hour of new and classic sketches perfect for children Pre-K to 3rd Grade, featuring hilarious stories, lovable characters, original music, on-stage painting, and signature paper and cardboard sets and costumes. Cowboys and cowgirls gallop onto the stage singing and dancing a wild Western welcome, Howdy! A chair with a mind of its own refuses to be sat upon. A group of trees, with a little help from the audience and their very own angel, discover how to outsmart a woodchopper. In The First Day of School, three children of very different temperaments sing their feelings about the start of a new school year. With vivid paint and lively song, Zymillaquixar, brings us straight out of the galaxy to an undiscovered planet where our astronauts meet a sweet little alien with a sense of humor. These are just a few of the playful flights of imagination in this joyous journey. HERE WE GO! will have the whole audience joining in: cheering, laughing, singing, up on their feet and dancing!

THE PAPER BAG PLAYERS: HERE WE GO! was created by Ted Brackett, Kevin Richard Woodall, and musical director John Stone, with classic sketches drawing from material created by founding artistic director Judith Martin and musical director Donald Ashwander.
