A new Synetic Family Theater show is opening this weekend at the Shirlington Village theater- The Magic Paintbrush!

Come on an adventure to ancient China, following the footsteps of an orphan and a dream.  Despite prejudices and position, the orphan aspires to become an artist.  That wish is answered when a mysterious old man presents a unique gift – a magic paintbrush.  The brush begins an enchanting journey that test the boundaries of humility and humanity.  What will become of the orphan and how will this gift be used?

Through a blend of music, dance, gymnastics, Chinese theater traditions, and physical storytelling – Synetic Family Theater actors help young theater goers understand that with power comes responsibility and wisdom.
