The Family Series was inspired by an original play, Out of the Box, by Elise Forier, ED at WICA in November 1999. The play was written for the Langley Middle School students and served to engage and make the arts accessible to our local Whidbey Island School District. 

Today, the Family Series presents a matinee, free to 6th and 7th graders at the Langley Middle School, and an evening performance open to the public. The shows offer a variety of experiences in theatre, dance, music, puppets, physical comedy and sneaky science education as well as master classes for youth in a local venue thus eliminating the ferry fares and transportation expenses of travel to the mainland.
