Pendragon and NCCC partner for Parents'

SARANAC LAKE - Pendragon Theatre brings Moby Dick Rehearsed back to its home turf for a limited engagement before continuing its North Country tour. Teaming with North Country Community College's (NCCC) Kids' Night Out on January 22nd, Pendragon Theatre hopes to give all community members the opportunity to see this incredible show.

Kids' Night Out will be held at the NCCC Sparks Athletic Complex from 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. on Friday, January 22nd allowing parents enough time to drop off their child/children and be at the Pendragon Theatre for opening curtain of Moby Dick Rehearsed at 7:30 p.m. Complimentary desserts will be available during intermission.

Kids' Night Out provides healthy alternatives to television and gaming through free play and some organized games under the supervision of NCCC athletes. The three-hour program costs $10 per child and is open to all children from five to twelve years of age. The fee supports NCCC's athletes and the Athletic Department.

"The Saints Athletic Department is excited about the opportunity to work with the Pendragon Theater. We are happy to be able to assist in providing parents with their own night out," says Heather Conger, director of the NCCC Athletics Department.

"This performance is open to everyone," reminds Pendragon Theatre's Managing Director Bob Pettee. " We also understand the needs of parents and hope they will know their children are well cared for at NCCC and to take advantage of the chance to see one of the last remaining shows of Moby Dick Rehearsed."

"We hope this new partnership with NCCC will allow parents to catch a show that has met with great audience response," says Pettee. "We've heard that Moby Dick Rehearsed is 'One of the best things seen at Pendragon.' We are delighted to continue to share this experience."

"Kids Night Out has always been about providing a connection between the Saints' programs and the community. While the main focus has been on providing a safe and fun environment for all involved, we never dismissed the opportunity it gives parents to have a few hours of their own," says Conger.
