Rootabaga Express Children’s Play at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


From June 13 through July 27, free summer children’s plays return on Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:15 a.m. Apprentice actors from the Flat Rock Playhouse Vagabond School of the Drama will perform “Rootabaga Express!,” a musical adaptation of Carl Sandburg’s children’s books, Rootabaga Stories. There will be no plays on July 4 and July 6.
The free 30-minute shows are appropriate for all ages and are held at the amphitheater, weather permitting. Young visitors who attend the plays can earn a limited edition Rootabaga Junior Ranger badge. Rootabaga Ranger activity sheets will be available at the amphitheater. Once completed, kids can get their Rootabaga Ranger badge at the amphitheater, Sandburg Home, or farm. A free shuttle, donated by the Friends of Carl Sandburg at Connemara, runs daily from 9:40am to 4:20pm and makes stops in the main parking lot, goat barn, and near the Sandburg Home. Visitors with mobility concerns are strongly urged to visit when the shuttle is running.
