Event Description

One day, a child has an idea. At first, they don’t know what to do with it. It seems strange. They don’t know what other people will think of this idea and they attempt to hide it away. But the idea persists and gets stronger along with the child’s confidence. And then, one day, something amazing happens….

Told through movement, music and narration, an ensemble of dancers creates a magical world where ideas grow and take flight. Based on The New York Times best selling book, this is a story for anyone, at any age, who has ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, or too difficult.

The 10:00 a.m. performance on March 2, 2022 will have a sign language interpreter. Guests who need the assistance of the interpreter: please note this on your order form so we can seat you appropriately.
