From Head to Toe

From Head to Toe

September 24 to January 7, 2017 | On the Black Box Theatre
World Premiere Theatre for the Very Young

Inspired by Eric Carle’s beloved book of the same name, From Head to Toe invites the youngest audience members to think, observe, and move like their favorite animals. This interactive theatrical experience will allow the toddlers to help “create” the animals in the book, bring them to life, and mimic their movement in a playful retelling of the classic story. Featuring a scenic design that mirrors the wonder of Carle’s illustrations and interactive yoga-inspired animal movement, this play moves from “Can you do it?” to “I can do it!”  to “We can do it!”  From Head to Toe is presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle.

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
