Brown is Not a Crayon"
What do you do when your best friend is leaving forever and, as if that weren't bad enough, doesn't even seem to care? ArtsPower's musical Amber Brown is Not a Crayon -- based on the book from Paula Danziger's best-selling series -- takes a refreshingly genuine look at the life of a third-grader.
January 13, 2013 National Marionette Theatre - "Peter and the Wolf"
The talented Syrotiak family returns to CandleKids this year with their latest production. The classic tale of Peter and the Wolf, with music by Sergei Prokofiev, about bravery, curiosity, ingenuity and "listening to your Grandfather!" has enchanted audiences since its premier in 1936. Based on the original Russian Folktale, National Marionette Theatre's version of the story features beautiful music to introduce young audiences to the various instruments of the orchestra combined with stunning scenery and hand-crafted marionettes. A timeless favorite for all ages!
