In My Granny's Garden


In My Granny's Garden

Calling all little ones and their grown-ups! IN MY GRANNY'S GARDEN invites little ones to a theatrical musical experience that explores the glory of growing your own food! Watch a tiny seed become a field of corn, green beans, collard greens, and bright red tomatoes.

Inspired by the children’s book by acclaimed playwright and New York Times bestselling author Pearl Cleage and her husband, writer and director Zaron W. Burnett Jr., with original paintings by world-renowned artist Radcliffe Bailey, little ones and their grown-ups step into a musical and visual feast to discover the one superpower that fuels Granny’s garden.

IN MY GRANNY'S GARDEN promises to leave the very young nourished in body and soul!

Recommended for children ages 0-8 and up. Performance run time is 40 minutes, with optional post-performance activities.
