E & M Presents
What We Do:
Bring extraordinary touring artists/companies to the Napa Valley just for kids and families and distribute hundreds of free tickets to under-served families. These experiences help fill a missing cultural niche and inspire kids to experience the performing arts in new ways. Magic, theater, dinosaurs, science, storytelling, film, bubbles and more.
Before each show, when possible, free arts activities and demonstrations take place in the theater lobby. After the show, kids get to meet the artists. Each show is interactive and lucky volunteers get to assist on stage. Past events include Doktor Kaboom, an explosively-fun science variety show; the Zoppe Italian Family Circus, and Lightwire Theater’s Ugly Duckling, a cutting-edge blend of puppetry, technology and dance.
Other Ways to Help:
- Assist at performances with ushering, art activities, box office, etc.
- Distribute posters and flyers.
- “Like” and “Share” E&M posts on social media.
- Share your ideas, contacts, business support, and knowledge of how to reach out to under-served children.
