Louisville Arts Groups Collaborate THE SNOWY DAY AND OTHER STORIES at Paristown

Three of Louisville’s arts organizations come together to present a unique ensemble-driven production that explores our connections to the changing of the seasons. The wonder of a fresh snowfall, the delight of whistling for the first time, the awe in finding a special treasure comes to life in The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats. Packed with humor and fun, this story celebrates the joy in the seasons of a child’s world.
