Poetry can be so much fun! In this engaging program, Red Sneaker Production’s David Zucker combines acting, mime, vocal gymnastics, humor, audience participation, and a steamer trunk full of costumes, puppets, and props to allow students to encounter poetry as an engaging and relevant art form. This irresistible cast of characters created from the poems by A.A.Milne, Lewis Carroll, Langston Hughes, Jack Prelutsky, Edgar Allan Poe, and James Whitcomb Riley is not to be missed.
