The Big Meow
Specially adapted for young audiences, Jane Franklin Dance offers a family-friendly performance of The Big Meow! Little Cat is taunted by neighborhood felines because his meow is just too darn loud. The dance-based performance is adapted from the children’s book by Baltimore author Elizabeth Spires and tells the story of an ever-hopeful orange fluff-ball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cats, but is ostracized for his “loud as a lion’s roar” meow. Kids and parents alike will enjoy the imaginative retelling of this story through dance.
Penelope’s Pesky Pen
This new dance production for kids and the young at heart is inspired by Frank Dormer’s latest children’s book “The Obstinate Pen.” The humorous story is about a pen with a mind of its own. Children will love Jane Franklin Dance’s lighthearted 30-minute performance, which follows Penny, Aunt Pearl, and young Penelope on a silly and enlightening adventure.
Who knows what to do with a pen that has a will of its own? Not Aunt Pearl, Not Pamela Particular. But young Penelope has an idea. . .
The Mouse of Amherst
This work for children, adapted from the book by Elizabeth Spires, is about a mouse who forms a friendship with reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The mouse’s life changes forever when a gust of wind blows one of Emily’s poems her way. Moved by Emily’s evocative words that capture her own feelings, the mouse becomes determined to be a poet herself. Young audience members learn that everyone can write about their feelings and that even a common mouse is capable of creating beautiful poetry.
