The Young Spectaculars and the Front Yard Adventure
Conceived by David Kilpatrick
Directed by Michael John Casey
A World Premiere Interactive Production for Children Ages 2-5
Meet brother and sister Andrew and Emma – aka The Young Spectaculars! Energized by their super-powered imaginations, they can’t wait to save their neighborhood! Except…their neighborhood doesn’t need saving...and their parents won’t let them leave the front yard anyway! So, stuck creating their own super adventures near the front porch, they stumble upon more than they bargained for – amazing derring-do, heroic rescues, and even…alligators? In the end, the Young Spectaculars do save someone – it just happens to be themselves.
Join the Young Spectaculars for Arts on the Horizon's newest piece intended for the little hero inside all of us.

More About Downtown Baptist Church
Downtown Baptist Church of Alexandria was founded to keep a Southern Baptist Church in downtown Alexandria and to preserve the city's oldest Baptist building.
The church was originally built in 1803 by the Alexandria Baptist Society. The church sanctuary building was rebuilt in 1830 after it largely was destroyed in a fire. During the Civil War, Union troops took over the church for use as a hospital.
When another Baptist church called First Baptist moved out of Old Town and further down King Street, a small group of Baptists decided to founded the current Downtown Baptist Church in the early 1950s.
