The adventures of “The Boxcar Children” have been enjoyed by generations and now come to life on the stage at the Racine Theatre Guild Friday, April 6 – Sunday, April 15.
Orphaned and in danger of going to different foster homes, Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny Alden run away and make a railroad boxcar their home. Pursued by the authorities and a mysterious stranger, the children discover the rewards and perils of life on the run, as well as the joy of keeping their family together.
