 This past month, the Adrienne Arsht Center was proud to accept recognition from Haute Living magazine for being one of the top 5 family-friendly venues of Miami. Distinguishing the Center as a welcoming and inspiring institution, Haute Living marks it as a family hotspot and a treasure trove of must-see performances. The magazine’s attention was drawn by the positive reaction of the Center’s summer musical for kids: Camp Kappawanna.


Just one year ago the Center’s Family Fest series was recognized by South Florida Parenting magazine as the best way to introduce kids to the performing arts. The standard then was set high, and the Center has lived up to its expectations and raised the bar even higher this summer season. The Center is continually striving to encourage excitement about the arts for young theatergoers. 

The world premiere of Camp Kappawanna was presented jointly by City Theatre (which commissioned the work) and The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. A celebration of timeless summer camp experiences, it featured hip, cool music and lyrics by Grammy® Award-nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb and a script by rising national playwright and South Florida native Marco Ramirez.  The play was just one of many family-oriented performances at the Adrienne Arsht Center, and audiences can look forward to another year of theatrical fun for the whole family!
