Drumming with Dishes

Press Opening

10/07/2017 - 11:30am - 12:00pm

What happens when you invite someone very different from you to come over to play? Just such an adventure awaits an adventurous child when she introduces her shy imaginary friend to a very special kitchen, where instead of food, they'll cook up beautiful music! This gentle, whimsical adventure celebrates friendship and turning the ordinary into the extraordinary as you never know just what will become a musical instrument next. Pasta box shakers and dishes drumming away with spoons are just some of the friendly surprises that encourage a child's sense of play. And as our heroine empowers her timid friend to create music, we discover just what wonders can be accomplished when we all work together.

Best for children ages 2-5 and their families
