BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, the longest operating performance venue in lower Manhattan, will present The Little Engine That Could Earns Her Whistle, in conjunction with ArtsPower National Touring Theatre, performing on Saturday, March 23 at 1:30PM. The Little Engine That Could Earns Her Whistle is a part of BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center's Family Theater Season, featuring plays, musicals, puppetry, concerts and dance for all ages.
Little Blue Engine dreams of someday leaving the train yard to pull the big cars on the main line track. But can she convince Big Silver that she is worthy of being a main line engine? Back to reprise its sold-out premiere season, ArtsPower's dynamic, song-filled adventure portrays Watty Piper's timeless tale about hard work, determination, and the meaning of true friendship. Suggested for ages 3 to 8.
National Education Association named The Little Engine That Could one of its "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children."
"For many children, The Little Engine That Could Earns Her Whistle may be the first stage production they ever see," says ArtsPower's executive producer Gary Blackman. "Our goal is not only to teach them valuable lessons about self-reliance, but also to instill in them a genuine love of theatre."
