If you give a child a glue stick… …they’re going to create a masterpiece.

This is exactly what the children who attended the Paramount Theatre event, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” did. The show is based on Laura Numeroff’s classic book. Before each performance of the show at the Paramount Theatre, Theatre Action Project volunteers helped the young theatergoers make mouse ears, as well as getting face painted whiskers and a nose.

Just one of a series of collaborations between the Paramount Theatre and TAP, this weekend’s show had a higher than usual attendance. Between shows, a large group of ‘mice’ could be seen scurrying between the arts and crafts tables and their theatre seats.

We hope to see all of these children at future Paramount Theatre shows, or this weekend’s Zilker Kite Festival, where TAP will have a booth with more fun activities, or they could even join us at our upcoming Spring Break or Summer Camps.
