Guitarist and percussionist Jennifer Trowbridge, joined by clarinetist Don Jacobs and singer Alexis Hope, will perform original musical adaptations of classic poems. Kids will also have a chance to read and record poems and participate in a scavenger hunt. Plus, poetry-related episodes of Arthur will be screened in our performance space, and Arthur himself will come by for a visit!
