From page to stage! Based on the New York Times bestselling book by Kobi Yamada, this story is told through movement, music, and narration, an ensemble of dancers creates a magical world where ideas grow and take flight.

One day, a child has an idea. At first, they don’t know what to do with it and they attempt to hide it away. The idea persists and gets stronger and then, one day, something amazing happens…

“Throughout the evening, kids laughed, asked questions, and some adults were seen wiping their eyes.”
— Broadway World
