This beautiful show follows the character of Peter and his friend Archie around the neighborhood in four of Ezra Jack Keats’ beloved tales, The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, and A Letter to Amy.
Renowned for his tender personality, the character of Peter faces relatable everyday challenges to which children of all ages will find delightfully entertaining.
The stories were brought to life with such joy! Peter is played by Tyasia Velines is able to capture the spirit, curiosity and fun of a young boy. The use of multimedia to We were especially delighted by the fake snow that fell from the ceiling. There are black boxes holding the snow above the seats about halfway up each section if you want it to snow on you.
We love the productions at Adventure Theatre! The sets, costumes and music are always amazing! The Snowy Day and Other Tales by Ezra Jack Keats was a series of short stories. There was enough cohesiveness for natural flow without trying too hard to create connections that are not actually there.
A Letter to Amy was probably our favorite short story. We loved the authentic and endearing potrayal of friendship and crushes for our little ones. It is an innocent and sweet and an age appropriate representation of childhood crushes.
The Snowy Day is recommended for all ages and all performances held in Glen Echo Park.
