The Short 4 Kids Family Program is an abridged version of the Summer Shorts Festival designed expressly for families. The program features performances tailored to a young audience, and includes a study guide which focuses on the literature of the show and the art of theatre. Shorts 4 Kids is performed at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and introduces youth to the dynamic “short” play format, and prompts important dialogue between children, parents and artists.
