Jabari Poster (white text)

Ten-year-old Jabari loves to paint.  With his Forever President Barack Obama as a guide, Jabari escapes the violent reality of an encounter with the police through his colorful paintings where he meets children from the past who teach him how to be fearless.  He then meets his hero, Barack Obama, as a 6-year-old boy on the eve of the assassination of MLK, Jr.  Will Jabari be able to instill in young Barack the lessons he's learned and therefore ensure that Barack will have the necessary tools to become president?  Will he learn to take these lessons back into his own life and heal his community?  JABARI DREAMS OF FREEDOM is a 45-minute dream, using rap, freedom songs, hip hop dance, history and humor to tell the story of a young Black boy from the South Side of Chicago who is afraid to leave the house, but learns to dream of freedom.

Meet the most unusual duckling the pond has ever seen!  In their nest at the edge of a pond, the baby ducklings wait impatiently for Mummy’s enormous egg to hatch.  But their new brother doesn’t look like everyone else.  He doesn’t even quack like a proper duckling!  Teased and called Ugly by his siblings, our hero goes on an adventure in search of a place to fit in.  As the seasons change, the lost and lonely fledgling meets a menagerie of mischievous animals…. but where does he really belong?  

tutti frutti brings to life Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known tale with a menagerie of animals, inventive physicality, and live music and songs that quack and trill.  This charming production plays with the importance of identity, self-worth and takes us on a journey to discover inner beauty.
