New York Times best-selling author Kwame Alexander brings two of his beloved children’s books, Acoustic Rooster and Indigo Blume, to the stage in a world premiere Kennedy Center commission. Alexander teams up with his writing partner Mary Rand Hess and long-time musical collaborator Randy Preston to tell a story about being scared, being brave, and believing in yourself. With special guests like Duck Ellington and Ms. Dairy Parton – plus Preston appearing as Acoustic Rooster – this musical adaptation will have children (and families) dancing in their seats.
Recommended for ages 5+.
