Explore New Worlds at Discovery Theater

Sunday, July 11, 2004; Page C02

. . . let the kids -- and the kid in you -- explore new worlds at Discovery Theater. A program of the Smithsonian Associates, this small black-box theater brings artists into Washington to share tales from around the world with a mix of puppets, songs, comedy, magic and storytelling. The remaining summer shows, which are geared toward ages 3 to 10, include the Box of Light Theatre Cos.' "Fractured Fairy Tales"; "Ago! Amee!," an interactive show from West Africa; and "Robert Strong and Friends," the perennial season closer.
