Join Shahnameh For Kids author Arsia Rozegar, and experience the ancient tale of the mythic hero, Rostam and his quest to save the King. Kids can interact and be a part of the journey battling dragons and monsters along the way.
Co-creators Fishhawk & Rocket will present a live retelling of their new, first-in-a-series children’s book, Billy & Tugboat SallyForth. This book is a hybrid of a picture book and a chapter book, and it includes graphic novel style comic art sequences as well. It tells a nautical tale of little Billy’s adventures on the Wide Whim Sea in his tugboat. Book and program alike are appropriate for kids of all ages. This storytime retelling will feature audience participation (on stage and/or in your seats) and a pirate treasure chest full of costumes and props for kids to interact with. Grownups can play along too! A grand (and very silly) time is guaranteed for all.
J.N. Fishhawk, Johnny Rocket Ibanez
