The Rainbow Beard Show at Possible Futures

Possible Futures 318 Edgewood Avenue, New Haven, CT

We're so excited to host The Rainbow Beard Show on June 15th at 2pm! In their own words: "'The Rainbow Beard Show' is an interactive experience hosted by Ricky Rainbow Beard that features puppets, games, stories, songs, and special guests through a comedic lens. Each new show is about a deep and simple theme and is written with kids ages 4-8 (and the grownups in their neighborhood) in mind. Together, we investigate our collective human experience through inquiry and play. In May/June 2024 we will be exploring LANGUAGES and the different forms they take such as spoken, written, body language, and images (i.e. emojis). Our guests include: a storyteller, a multilingual community organizer, and even a lawyer! We will ask questions such as: - What does it mean when we say language? - Which types of language do you use in your everyday life? - How can we speak each other’s languages? Remember to wear your dancing pants." For more information
