Things get off track at Children’s Theater

Sacramento Children’s Theater will present “Rocket, the Runaway Engine” from Feb. 4 through March 7 at Luther Burbank High School for its 75th anniversary season.

The show tells the story of a bored little train engine who jumps the track from his regular run to Pokeyville and speeds off to see a big city before he has completed his education. “Rocket, the Runaway Engine” is written by Gail A. Halverson and directed by Tina Cole.

For 75 years, Sacramento Children’s Theater has entertained and educated local elementary school children with a free musical theater production.

Operated by the Junior League of Sacramento since the 1940s, the program transitioned to Fairytale Town in the fall of 2013 to begin operation with the 2014 season. Fairytale Town works with community volunteers who serve as playwrights, actors, backstage helpers, costume sewers and more.

“Fairytale Town is honored to carry on the Junior League’s legacy of promoting live theater to children in our community,” said Kathy Fleming, executive director of Fairytale Town. “The Sacramento Children’s Theater program augments Fairytale Town’s long and rich history of providing children with their first experience of live theater.”

Performances are free to local school groups for students in pre-kindergarten through third grade. Advance reservations are required. All performances will take place at Luther Burbank High School.

Sacramento Children’s Theater is supported by the Junior League of Sacramento, RCA Community Fund of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, California Foundation for Stronger Communities, California Retired Teachers Association and Luther Burbank High School.

Fairy Tale Town is located at 3901 Land Park Drive in Sacramento and is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., weather permitting.
