Jungle Explorers!

June 22, 10:30 am.

This program will be in person at Sedgwick Library. 

Bianca the Butterfly is scared to fly. She journeys through the jungle to find her courage and along the way meets a monkey, Venus fly trap, and a lion who help her find inner strength. Dazzling creatures of all kinds come to life in this highly interactive song- and dance-filled performance for young people! 

Presented by Urban Stages
