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. . .
Event begins at 4:00PM
Presented by: Jane Franklin Dance
Featured Artist(s): Jane Franklin Dance Company
