PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

On August 10, Synchronicity Performance Group starts a whole new chapter as we present the classic show for children -- Free to Be, You and Me. Originally created by Marlo Thomas as a film, album and book in 1974, this spectacular collection of stories, songs, poems and puppets is packed with enough inspiration to span several generations. Kids and parents will be singing along with our dynamic four-actor ensemble and learning important lessons of identity, acceptance, tolerance, hope and friendship. Marlo Thomas set out to create a show to challenge stereotypes and honor and accept diversity and uniqueness. To celebrate hope, love and community. To encourage parents and children to learn how… TO BE. She rallied like-minded artists to her cause and the end result is a wonderful mix of stories and poems by Shel Silverstein, Judy Blume, Carl Reiner, Charlotte Zolotow, and Judith Viorst, among others.

My First Play

Hello. My name is Julia Rudy, and my Daddy asked me to write this. I'm 2 1/2, and my Daddy took me to see these kids in this really really hot room, that made me kind of squirmy. Soon, though, the lights got fun and there was singing and baby puppets and toys and I got to clap a lot (I think the clapping is my favorite part). I've never seen a play before. There was a lot I didn't understand (Daddy said I would when I got to be 5 or 6, but I don't know when that is, even though I can count to 12). I liked the songs and the clapping and the babys, but there was one song about crying that I didn't understand. I wanted to go and play with all these kids' toys, but Daddy wouldn't let me. Mommy says that I have to deal the fact that my Daddy is a jerk, but I don't know what that means. But I didn't have to be taken out of the room like some other kids did when they got grumpy, so my Daddy is really proud of me. Oh, I also really really like the time when they were pretending to go into outer space (like Steve and his dog Blue did once) because they wore these funny hats and the lights got all swirly and it made me giggle like I do when Mommy tickles me. I also got to clap a lot. I like clapping, and this made me and all the other kids and Mommys and Daddys clap a whole lot. I'm getting squirmy again, so Daddy says I can go watch Mr. John sing with Kermit and Miss Piggy and fall into the crocodiles. Mr. John is still my favorite.
