The amazing folks over at WhyArts? have arranged for a series of FREE performances this coming Summer. Each performance will provide “through-provoking puppet shows designed to promote awareness and positive attitudes among young children.” Each show is FREE and consists of a 20-minute dialogue between 2 puppets, one of who has a disability. The second puppet asks the first puppet questions about their disability. Each show concludes with a performance of the song “Kids are Different” in sign language, followed by a Q&A session.
We will keep a listing of every performance in our Events Calendar, but here are the performances confirmed so far:
- Saturday, May 26 at Omaha Children’s Museum at 11:00 AM. Meet Renaldo, a puppet with low vision.
- Sunday, June 10 at the Summer Arts Festival at 10:00 AM.
- Friday, July 27 at Turner Mark at Midtown Crossing. Time is TBD.
- Friday, September 28 at Turner Mark at Midtown Crossing. Time is TBD.
