Join us for Big World Fun 2017

To the families who love art, music, culture and dance:

Join me and a small group of all-ages volunteers for pre-show art projects at BIG WORLD FUN! 

Big World Fun is a family series presented by the Ford Theatres that takes place on Saturday mornings at 10:00 AM in July and August. These hour-long music and dance performances are for children ages 4 to 12 and their families. Travel the world without leaving LA, as groups representing music and dance from Micronesia, Japan and more. Bring the whole family! FREE for kids; adults pay $5. Parking is $1.

Just like last year, we'll offer easy and fun pre-show art projects for kids and their families for 45 minutes before each show. We need volunteers ages 10 and up to arrive by 8:45am, help setup and assist folks with navigating the craft table, answer questions or offer help in making the crafts.

Last year was a blast and I hope to see your shining faces this summer!
