Don't Tell Me I Can't Fly: Children's Theatre

We are headed to Imaginon on Wednesday for the Children's Theatre performance of Don't Tell Me I Can't Fy.  This following summary is from CT's website:

The whimsical world of a child's imagination comes to life in this play, inspired by the life and work of acclaimed folk artist Della Wells. The gentle, beautifully written story gives a glimpse into the sometimes challenging lives of an African-American family in the 1960s, where Tonia’s parents initially encourage their daughter to blend in with the crowd. With humor and sensitivity, Tonia’s family begins to learn the value of creativity and the need to allow -- and encourage -- children to reach for their dreams.
