The stories this month celebrate all that the word “family” encompasses and the many places we can find love and support. Four to ten year olds are invited to enjoy a dramatic reading of two popular children’s books by professional actors and then explore the stories and characters in an interactive workshop!
Cost: $15 for one child and an adult. $8 per additional person. Sign up for the month, for $45 for one child with an adult and $25 per additional person, and save, or pick individual dates that work for you.
