BARNEVELD— What could be more fun for the family than a free performance by an accomplished theatre troupe? One followed by a free ice cream social, of course.

This summer Unity Hall, in conjunction with the Barneveld Free Library, presents its first professional touring production for children.

Kids and adults will delight in the Merry-Go-Round Youth Theatre’s performance of “The Bremen Town Musicians” at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 15, at Unity Hall’s Landecker Auditorium, 101 Vanderkemp Ave.

A free ice cream social, compliments of Stewart’s Shops, will follow.

Based in Auburn, The Merry-Go-round Youth Theatre is one of the largest professional touring companies for children in the country. “The Bremen Town Musicians” is a brand new adaptation of the classic Brothers’ Grimm fairytale. The play follows four outcasts: a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster who have all left their homes because they have been told they are no longer useful. Their misfortune brings them together and sets them off on a whirlwind, musical adventure. In the end, the four friends learn that their unique talents are what make them special. Through teamwork, creativity, and a little music, they can do anything.

Admission is for this special performance is free, but reservations are recommended. Reservations can be made by email at unityhallfoundation@gmail.com or by calling 315-520-8231. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
