Inspired by Ezra Jack Keats’ acclaimed children’s books — including the 1963 Caldecott Medal winner “The Snowy Day” — follow the adventures of young Peter as he explores the world around him. From the joys of a first snowfall and learning how to whistle to thrilling encounters delivering a precious invitation, the delightful moments of childhood are perfectly captured in this medley of simple, sweet stories.
“This beautiful story is fun for the whole family,” said Nathanael Fisher ECTC co-founder and producing artistic director. “We are thrilled to bring award-winning literature to our stage in partnership with our local schools. And are so excited that more than 500 school children are scheduled to see the show from Okaloosa and Walton County.”
