Blue

Dallas Children's Theater is proud to be part of the national effort to introduce more toddler-friendly theater experiences. A growing body of research speaks to the benefits of theater for the very young. BLUE is returning as part of this initiative while additional new works for these audiences continue to be developed. Pale Blue and Inky Blue are very happy in their blueness. When a red sock enters their kitchen, Pale and Inky AND the audience are surprised by the way their world is turned upside down. This play introduces the idea of acceptance in an age-appropriate, soft-hearted theatrical experience. It is filled with fun, humor, and whimsy - and at the end of the show, you will be too!

If you come a few minutes late the group may have already started their walk so it is important to be on time. Walks are included in regular admission. These bird walks are intended to help beginning and intermediate birders with bird spotting and identification techniques. There will also be plenty of opportunity for questions. Prairie, woodland, and wetland habitats are included in these walks.

Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida

Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) is one of the major sculptors of the post-war international art movement. His monumental public works can be found throughout Spain, Europe and the Americas. Memory, Mind, Matter: The Sculpture of Eduardo Chillida presents 66 works of sculpture, drawing, collage, gravitations, graphic works, and a small selection of artists’ books, representing a general view of the mature phase of this key sculptor of the post-war avant-garde. Co-curated by William Jeffett, curator of exhibitions for The Dalí Museum, and Ignacio Chillida, the artist’s son, the works in the exhibition come exclusively from the Museo Chillida-Leku in Hernani (San Sebastián, Spain). The exhibition seeks to demonstrate the artist’s interest in space and form, which is understood as anchored in the human body and organic concerns (rather than reading his work as abstract, an idea Chillida rejected). It considers how he represents the legacy of the pre-war avant-garde’s interest in human subjectivity and notions of form as it bears poetic content, and will also include a reflection on the artist’s engagement with poetry and philosophy, and his proximity to writers of the period. This exhibition is co-organized by The Dalí Museum and Museo Chillida-Leku, in collaboration with the Meadows Museum at SMU, Dallas

Pete the Cat Methodist Richardson Family Theatre Series

PETE THE CAT, a new musical from Theatreworks USA, is based on the series of books by Kimberly and James Dean. When PETE THE CAT gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners - and boy are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth. As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second-grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration.
