Kids on the Block is an internationally acclaimed disability
awareness program that educates children about people with disabilities
and acceptance of differences through the use of puppet theater. The
Japanese style of puppetry used is called Bunraku and is extremely
effective in creating an atmosphere where children feel comfortable
asking questions. Performances encourage children to see people with
disabilities from a new perspective as other children with strengths and
weaknesses, just like themselves. Performances are geared toward
children in the third and fourth grades.
Fees: No charge for performances, donations graciously accepted.
