Skip to main content Balloonacy


by Barry Kornhauser | Discover the power of friendship, imagination, and silliness

October 28, 2023 – November 19, 2023

It starts so simply: A red balloon drifts through the window of a solitary old man’s home. But then some serious silliness begins — with things fast becoming so magical and so blissfully fun, you barely notice that along the way you’ve learned something about the extraordinarily transformative power of play! Without a single spoken word, this sweet, inventive, and uplifting show — packed with plenty of playful shtick, along with touching reminders of the ups and downs of building a friendship — is a tender and laugh-filled delight for little ones (and big ones, too)!

“Balloonacy is short and simple; A lovely tale that easily captures the attention of the tiniest of audience members and holds their focus until the end. Don’t miss this adorable production that teaches that the potential for friendship is everywhere, as long as you are willing to accept it.” —DC Metro Theater Arts
