After you've giggled your way through our delightful show, ask your adult to drive you west to the Marcus Ridge Cinema in New Berlin. The Milwaukee Children's Film Festival will be screening the film Azur & Asmar. First Stage Education Director Julia Magnasco is co-director of this first-ever festival, and she says, "Go see this! You will love it! There's a quest. And it's not babyish at all!" Assure that dear adult by your side that the film is stylistically gorgeous and will appeal to people ages five to forty-five. Following the film, Miss Julia will lead a free family workshop where you will get creative and have fun while your adult discusses the undercurrent of prejudice that made the message of Azur & Asmar so relevant. It'll be great!
Then buy your adult an ice cream cone. Or a latte. And say thank you for an awesome day. Because you are lucky. And so is your adult. We are too, actually. Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for coming to these shows!
