Acoustic Rooster's Barnyard Boogie: Starring Indigo Blume

Saturday, April 15, 2023 • 11AM and 1PM

Presented By The Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences on Tour

Based on the Acoustic Rooster and Indigo Blume books by Kwame Alexander
Written by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess
Music by Randy Preston
Directed by Lili-Anne Brown

New York Times best-selling author Kwame Alexander brings two of his beloved children’s books—Acoustic Rooster and Indigo Blume—to the stage. Alexander teams up with his longtime musical collaborator Randy Preston to tell a story about being scared, being brave, and believing in yourself. With special guests like Duck Ellington and Ms. Dairy Parton—plus Preston appearing as Acoustic Rooster—this musical adaptation will have children (and families) dancing in their seats.

Recommended for ages 5 and up.
