CATCO offers a reminder that good theater doesn’t just show up at your door in completely finished form. Its New Works Festival for Young Audiences, slated for Dec. 2-11 at the Columbus Performing Arts Center, offers a look at new and in-progress productions at three different stages of development. The festival is targeted for ages 7 and older, but it’s really for anyone who’s willing to suspend a little more disbelief upon entering the hall. Not to mention, you’ll get a look at unfamiliar work that might just be moving or touching in just the right way. Festival passes are $15 for students, $25 for adults. Individual performance tickets will also be available as the shows approach.
