Central Texas’ most well-known children’s theatre company, Pollyanna Theatre, is proud to present PATTERN NATION: WAVES.
PATTERN NATION: WAVES explores the colorful world of waves and is intended to support important pre-literacy skills needed for learning success among pre-school children. Though appropriate for elementary school children of all ages, PATTERN NATION: WAVES will be most enjoyed by students in pre-K, Kinder, and grades 1 & 2. As with all Pollyanna Theatre plays, teacher/parent study guides are available, free of charge.
The play follows the fun adventure of four friends as they explore the many types of waves found around them in nature. The show opens with Cyan Circle waiting for his cousin, Amber Oval to arrive for their regular play date. However, fun soon erupts when Amber brings along her friends Jade Triangle and Pinky Rombus. Soon the four find themselves on amazing imaginative adventures at the beach, beside a very still lake hosted by a mermaid, and in the world of secret spies who are investigating invisible sound and light waves.
