THE SNOWY DAY Will Melt Audiences' Hearts at Adventure Theatre MTC

Adventure Theatre MTC brings audiences in from the cold with stories of Peter and friends in The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats directed by Victoria Murray Baatin.

Recommended for all ages, tickets are on sale now at www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org or call 301-634-2270.

Executive Director Leon Seemann, Education Director Margo Brenner Collins, and Artistic Director Chil Kong are excited about this beautiful show that follows the character of Peter and his friend Archie around the neighborhood in four of Ezra Jack Keats' beloved tales, The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, and A Letter to Amy. Renowned for his tender personality, the character of Peter faces relatable everyday challenges to which children of all ages will find delightfully entertaining.

Chil Kong, Artistic Director of Adventure Theatre MTC says, "We have an extremely diverse cast and creative team that are really enjoying the simple childhood pleasures we associate with Keats' work. His focus on these learning moments and relatable challenges makes his illustrations and words timeless, and families are going to walk away with having that warmth captured in their hearts regardless of age. This book means so much to Adventure Theatre, honoring Ezra Jack Keats and his multicultural philosophy of wanting no child to feel like an outsider."
