What The Wind Taught Me

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Hello again,

Wow, it is September and we are off to another exciting season at the Fox.  We have a great free event coming on Tuesday September 17th at 1:00 and 7:00 PM.  The Lied Center of Lincoln has a cultural outreach program called Arts Across Nebraska.  Some of the past offerings have been Susan Werner and Jazz Singer Jackie Allen and her band.  This year we are presenting an original play called What The Wind Taught Me by Becky Key Boesen.  It is about Ten year old Evan Davis a boy who enjoys looking at the sky through his beloved telescope.  A family loss, a fear of storms, and a bully are making life difficult.  A tornado and the arrival of a time-traveling teacher help Evan confront his storms and help him to realize that anything is possible with the help of family, love of learning, and a helpful wise teacher.  Many area students are attending the 1:00 matinee.  The show is offered to the public at no cost to you thanks to the generosity of the Kimmel Foundation.  Please put this show on your calendar and plan to attend.
