Llama, Llama Live Comes To George Daily

Oskaloosa, Iowa – A family-friendly production is set to hit the stage at George Daily Auditorium on February 25th, 2020, as Llama Llama Live comes to life. Showtime is at 7 pm.

Allison McGuire, with the George Daily Auditorium, says that even though no live llamas will be on stage, the stage will come to life with the world created by Anna Dewdney.

The musical version of storylines that are found in the beloved children’s books will come to life. “It’s all about how baby llama has had a great day but does not want to go to bed,” explained McGuire.

“It’s really a family show,” adds McGuire. “It’s great for the preschoolers in your life, so it’s a great first experience of live theater,” said McGuire.

The show runs for about 60 minutes. “It can be entertaining for the adults who are attending with the kids as well,” said McGuire.

There will also be a Llama Llama pajama party happening in the hour before the show. Tickets for that are just $5. “We encourage people to come in their pajamas to that party and to the show,” McGuire added.

Llama Llama Live! tickets are available from https://www.georgedaily.org/. Prices are $14 for adults and $7 for students.

Tickets are also available for the final professional act of the season. Fly Dance Company takes the stage on March 25th, 2020, at 7 pm.

“FLY is what happens when street dance and classical music meet, but that’s not all. Their performance style is called “theatrical hip hop” — “theatrical” because acting is an essential element of the style,” explains the George Daily website.
