The Oakland Center for the Arts Kids First Theatre Initiative performed “Rumpelstiltskin” for community members at the Boardman library.

Performers were members of the PB&J players, a group of young actors who put on plays for children.

During the show four actors portrayed the characters of Rumpelstiltskin, the king, Lilly and her mother.

Children gathered in the audience participate in the play as well.

Actors worked with the crowd to create back round noises and respond to cues.

More than 50 children and their families gathered at the library to watch the show.

Along with Boardman the group will travel to a number of branches to perform the play.

Performances at the Canfield and Poland branches are scheduled for next week.
