Put down the remote. Turn off the X-Box. Log off the laptop. Bring the family to experience professional, live, stage productions when the Tower Theatre Foundation launches its new Family Series Sunday, January 25 at 2pm with Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse.
This delightful adaptation of Kevin Henkes’ award-winning children’s book is recommended for age 4 to 8, and runs approximately one hour. Lily loves everything about school, especially her cool teacher, Mr. Slinger. But when he confiscates her prized possession, a purple plastic purse that plays music, joy turns to misery. Then a note changes her attitude: “Today was a difficult day. Tomorrow will be better.” But villainous bicycle-riding bullies, a spotlight-stealing baby brother and the dreaded “uncooperative chair” test our heroine’s resolve.
The Tower’s Family Series is sponsored by Tetherow, Warren John West and Sun Mountain Fun Center. Upcoming presentations in the series include:
Nelson Illusions: February 21
Voetberg Family Band: March 13
