Balloonacy
By Barry Kornhauser
Directed by Peter C. Brosius
A Children’s Theatre Company Original Production
Best enjoyed by preschoolers

Imagine a single balloon changing one person’s life forever. It starts so simply: A balloon drifts through the window of a lonely old man’s home on his birthday. Then something surprising happens—then something silly, wonderful and so blissfully fun that you barely notice you’ve learned something special about friendship along the way. Perfectly designed with the preschooler in mind, rediscover play in this back by popular demand production!
