Kid-Friendly Saturdays – December 11

Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.

This week’s performers are The Okee Dokee Brothers (banjos and bluegrass)

Inspired by their own backyard adventures, The Okee Dokee Brothers currently perform original music that reminds audiences of their own make-believes and treehouse-pretendings. Their show can transport you to the wilds of Africa, the tip-top of a gigantic rollercoaster, or down the Mississippi on a homemade raft. The Okee Dokee Brothers (Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander) believe that music should be an energetic, interactive, and fun experience where kids can enjoy dancing, singing and playing instruments with their families. So come on down to the Rotunda Stage and join the Brothers to have a rip-roarin’, knee-thumpin’ good time!
