A unique performance aimed at engaging kids in performance art is coming to Canyon Springs School in Anthem Nov. 17. The Arizona group Childsplay will perform the play “Tomas and the Library Lady.”

About the troupe: Childsplay is an internationally respected professional theater company that aims to “create theatre so strikingly original in form, content or both that it instills in young people an enduring awe, love and respect for the medium, thus preserving imagination and wonder, those hallmarks of childhood that are the keys to the future.”

About the play: Tomás loves stories and Papa Grande tells them to him todas las noches! One day while his family is in Iowa picking crops, Tomás meets the Library Lady and nothing is ever the same again. Soon his imagination takes off as he reads book after book, discovering a world filled with dinosaurs, tigers, and explorers.
