KidZ Days At the Center

KidZ Days At the Center is our free programming for children, held outdoors on KidZ Stage throughout the summer months on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00 am – 11:00 am.  This community service provides live performing arts that incorporate an educational component and encourage interactive participation.

 

In addition to our regular presenters, such as First Stage and the Milwaukee Public Library, we will have special guest performers such as David Stokes, PeterJohn Lindsey and Danceworks, Inc.  New this year, will be cultural Thursdays, which will represent the Native American, African, Asian, Hispanic, Indian and some European countries.  We look forward to learning about and celebrating the rich cultural diversity within our city.
