The Upper Shores branch of the Ocean County Library hosted Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre’s bilingual production of “Mi Casa Tu Casa” Wednesday for children and families at the Hugh J. Boyd Elementary School, Seaside Heights Wednesday.
More than 200 people filled the school’s auditorium.
The four-member cast blended music and folktales where a humble mouse could charm a lovely cockroach, a young girl could find beauty in her new home in American, and the feather of a Thunderbird could bring prosperity to a person who believes.
Musicians Chris Kent (electric guitar) and Jane Keitel (keyboard) accompanied storytellers Allicia Rivas and Michael Aquino through the hour long program, a presentation of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s annual Stages Festival.
The annual festival brings professional theater companies to local neighborhoods in March, delighting children, families and other adults with Broadway-quality programs.
This marks the eighteenth year Ocean County Library has partnered with Stages Festival. It presented eight different productions at 13 branches this year. The programs are presented by the library free of charge.
