Childcare providers: Join LVCI, 4 County Kids, & Sandhills First Steps for complimentary dinner and conversation preceding the "Pretty Fire" performance
A profound celebration of life, Pretty Fire challenges audiences to "listen, feel, and soar in joy!" Playwright Charlayne Woodard shares her experiences as a young African-American girl with stories of family and faith. The result is a powerful message of love and healing.
Offered as required education hours for licensed childcare providers.
Free to the public! Presented by Crane River Theater Company
