And other stories by Ezra Jack Keats

Adapted by Jerome Hairston


Based on the Caldecott Award-winning book by Ezra Jack Keats The Coterie presents Mesner Puppets production of The Snowy Day and other stories by Ezra Jack Keats, which celebrates the magic and boundless possibilities of the first snowfall! Follow Peter and his friends as they romp and play, starting snow ball fights and making snow angels in this uplifting musical play about childhood joys and living life to the fullest each day.  Using inventive puppetry, Keats’ little boy in the red coat comes to life in this charming story collection of Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, A Letter to Amy, and The Snowy Day.
