WESTPORT, Conn. -- All are invited to help launch the Westport Country Playhouse family series season with a free Family Festivities Kick-Off Party Sunday.

The event is from 1-4 p.m. and features a variety of family-friendly activities, such as games, a puppet theater and face painting. There also will be dress-up costumes that kids can try on stage and a fire truck to explore from the Westport Fire Department.

Live music will be provided by Jay and Ray and The Suzuki Music School of Westport. Food will be available, including free samples from Qdoba.

Also, there will be a tag sale of Playhouse memorabilia, including vintage playbills, posters, and props, in the Sheffer Rehearsal Studio. In addition to information about the upcoming roster of shows, there will be companion books for sale and special ticket discounts.

Sunday's party is a prelude to the Westport Country Playhouse's 2015-16 Family Festivities Series, which starts Nov. 15 with "The Berenstain Bears Live: Family Matters, The Musical." The series continues on selected Sundays through April with shows drawn from popular children's stories, such as “Fancy Nancy” and “Charlotte’s Web.”

"These plays will be the first live theatrical experience for many of our audiences, and it’s our pleasure to provide this opportunity so close to home,” said Don Rebar, community engagement and digital content manager.

All performances last about an hour. Tickets are $20, and include pre-show activities one hour prior to each performance. For more details on the Family Festivities lineup, visit the Westport Country Playhouse's website .
