This play is about listening… listening to others… listening to ourselves… really listening and finding your voice… It is about finding the freedom to speak up as well as the courage to enjoy silence.

The free 30-minute performance is provided through a grant from Kaiser Permanente. Suitable for ages 3 and older. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
