VIRTUAL – A Kids Play About Racism
Sunday, August 2
One event on August 2, 2020 at 12:00 am
Childsplay, Inc. joins 36 other theatrical groups around the country to present the virtual premiere of “A Kids Play About Racism,” a theatrical adaptation of Jelani Memory’s “A Kids Book About Racism,” on the streaming platform Broadway On Demand.
All 37 partner organizations are members of Theatre for Young Audiences USA (TYA/USA), the national organization representing the field of theater for children and family audiences.
“A Kids Play About Racism” offers young children and families a way to engage in meaningful conversations about race. As part of the production, educational materials developed by Seattle Children’s Theatre in collaboration with the Northwest African American Museum will extend the experience and enhance age-appropriate engagement.
The new work is adapted and directed by award-winning director and TYA artist Khalia Davis and will be brought to life by an entirely Black and BIPOC cast and creative team from across the United States.
