Dovie Thomason: Lessons from the Animal People

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

The Publick Playhouse is pleased to present the GEICO Gecko Series, a series of midweek matinees for youth generously supported by the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation. GEICO Gecko Series matinees are free to qualifying Title 1 schools, giving young people the opportunity to experience outstanding performances at the Publick Playhouse. Educators, look for the GEICO Gecko that identifies the performances, and call Group Sales at 301-277-1710 to reserve your space.

The rich heritage of the First Nations comes alive when Dovie Thomason shares an intertribal sampling of animal stories from her Plains Apache and Lakota ancestors. The imaginative tales often answer questions children have about animals (“why do bears hibernate?”) in stories that teach proper values and behavior, and capture tots’ attention.

Ages: Recommended for Kindergarten through 5th grade
