Arts on the Horizon's inaugural production is back, this time with a holiday twist!

Drumming with Dishes: The Holiday Edition

by David Kilpatrick
Directed by Jennifer Furlong

What happens when you invite someone very different from you to come over to play? Just such an adventure awaits an adventurous toddler when she introduces her shy imaginary friend to a very special kitchen, where instead of food, they'll cook up beautiful music! This gentle, playful adventure celebrates friendship and turning the ordinary into the extraordinary as you never know just what will become a musical instrument next. Pasta box shakers and dishes drumming away with spoons are just some of the friendly surprises that encourage a child's sense of play. And as our heroine empowers her timid friend to create music, we discover just what wonders can be accomplished when we all work together.

Celebrate in this child's kitchen as she introduces her imaginary friend to what makes the holiday season the most wonderful time of year.
