Locomotion takes the audience into the life of 11-year-old Lonnie Motion, as he finds new tools -  the result of a school poetry assignment – which help him to process the tumult of life in foster care. As Lonnie discovers the power of poetry, he experiences deeper connections to his new foster mother, his school friend Enrique, his teacher Ms. Marcus, and his beloved younger sister Lili.

Review: LOCOMOTION at Children's Theatre Company
Review: LOCOMOTION at Children's Theatre Company
February 17, 2023

What did our critic think of LOCOMOTION at Children's Theatre Company? This was a neat production. The set and lighting reflected a composition notebook that would have projections of housing, classroom, and fire. The furtniture also had the notebook design concept in it. The cast was a talented group of five actors. The production I saw had understudies Amir Byrd (Lonnie) and Rue Norman (Mama/Ms Edna/Ms Marcus/) and Junie Edwards who plays Lonnie was in the roll of Enrique. The costumers were bright and colorful.
