“What is Real? When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.” The power of play and childhood fancy, the pure light of unconditional love – these timeless forces illuminate our faithful rendering of Margery Williams’ tale of friendship and the passing of time. A lovely score and detailed period costumes will transport your audience back to the beginning of the last century. There they will experience a particular innocence and wisdom that have much to say to our present culture of instant gratification and disposable friends.
About The Series
From its inception, the Kravis Center has focused on the idea of making the performing arts a part of the lives of every member of the community. The goal of building broad-based appreciation and support for the arts can best be achieved by nurturing young peoples’ innate connection to art and by providing maximum accessibility. In keeping with that goal, the Kravis Center brings classroom curriculum to life for tens of thousands of local students each year through the S*T*A*R Series, offering the most current, challenging and artistically diverse young people’s programming. The educational value of the shows is further enhanced through comprehensive study guides that we supply to students and teachers (available for most performances) incorporating standards that address skills tested on FCAT. An Admission Waiver Program– Sponsored by The Rusty Staub Foundation – assures that no student will be denied admission due to economic need.
