If your kids have grown bored with their bedtime stories, a new theater company aims to take the stories from the page right to the stage. Sprouts Theatre specializes in performances for kids between four and 10 years old. Although the group began in Boston in the 1980s, artistic director Stan Gill recently moved to Charleston and made a home for the company in Creative Spark’s theater space. Gill creates musicals based on fairy tales that incorporate high-energy acting and audience participation. They also have "Small Sibling Shows" before the production for children under the age of four. Coming soon to the Creative Spark Theatre is Hansel and Gretel on Jan. 15-17 and 22-24 and The Emperor’s New Clothes in March. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling (843) 881-3780 or at creativespark.org
