Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
Little Kids Little Songs is a fabulous introduction to live music, comedy and theatre for children ages two through eight and practically guarantees a wonderful time.

Soft, sweet, playful and funny - the original music and storytelling of Keith Torgan and the virtuosity of flutist Barbara Siesel will tickle not only the newest and youngest of audience members but anyone within earshot!
