Leo Lionni’s Frederick
Frederick the field mouse has more on his mind than gathering grain for the winter or cataloging rare cheeses. He spends all of his time sitting on the rocks, “gathering sun rays for the cold dark winter days.” And as the blusteriest season descends, Frederick helps his fellow mice weather the weather in his own special way. This warm performance teaches children about family, love, and mutual respect, all to a soundtrack of original music. The stage production is based on the Caldecott Honor-winning children’s book by Leo Lionni, whose colorful, collage-like illustrations won him legions of fans both large and small.
The Rose Theater
When it was originally built as the Riviera in 1927, The Rose Theater played host to vaudeville skits, stage acts, and feature films in opulent surroundings of murals, oriental rugs, and a ceiling decorated with electric stars and clouds. However, the stock-market crash of 1929 forced the theater’s sale, bouncing it from owner to owner until Rose Blumkin and her family saved it from a giant wielding a wrecking ball as a mace. Renovated to its former glory, the theater is now a place where professional stage productions and drama courses give children the chance to enjoy and participate in the arts of the stage.
