The Theatre Arts department at Dominican University Presents FREE TO BE...YOU AND ME 12/4-6
The Theatre Arts department at Dominican University presents the delightful family show Free to Be...You and Me this weekend at DUPAC.
A snappy show that has the same magical effect on kids as when first created, Free to Be... You and Me celebrates individuality and challenges stereotypes. This much loved children's special became a breakthru hit as a Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling record album, a best-selling book, an Emmy-winning TV special and a stage production.
Clever songs and poems encourage kids to think less about what they should be and more about who they want to be, and to have compassion and empathy for others who may be different. Parents and other grown-up friends will delight in sharing this extraordinary and memorable experience with the children in their lives.
