Mouse in House, a performance for children, adapted from the book, The Mouse of Amherst by Elizabeth Spires about an unlikely friendship between a lively mouse and reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson, with video backdrop animation by Bryan Leister. 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. Kids and parents alike will enjoy the imaginative retelling of this story through dance.
Event begins at 2:00PM
Presented by: Jane Franklin Dance
