The Snowy Day and Other Stories By Ezra Jack Keats - Feb. 24 – Mar. 12, 2023

Adapted for the stage by Jerome Hairston
Based on the book by Ezra Jack Keats
Directed by Detra Payne

The wonder of a fresh snowfall, the delight of whistling for the first time, being inclusive in one’s friendships, and the awe in finding a special treasure. These pleasures all come to life in The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats; stories and characters that ultimately became an inspiration for Sesame Street! Packed with humor and fun, this Caldecott Winner celebrates the joy in the small moments of a child’s world. 

Suggested for ages 3+
