Tower’s Family Series Continues with “Harold & the Purple Crayon”

Tower’s Family Series Continues with “Harold & the Purple Crayon”

“One evening, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight.” So begins The Adventures of Harold and the Purple Crayon, the second installment of the Tower Theatre Foundation’s new Family Series, on Friday, February 6 at 6 pm. Based on the seven picture books by Crockett Johnson, Harold creates the world he wants to explore, using nothing more than a big purple crayon and his sky’s-the-limit imagination. The innovative production from Philadelphia’s Enchantment Theatre Company takes families on a wild ride as Harold jets to Mars, joins a circus, and meets a princess.

“The ‘Harold’ books have captivated families for more than fifty years,” said Ray Solley, executive director of the Tower Theatre Foundation. “With life-size puppets, masked actors, magic, video animation, and music, this unique production perfectly captures Harold’s world of make believe and line drawings.”

The Tower’s Family Series is sponsored by Tetherow, Warren John West, and Sun Mountain Fun Center. Upcoming presentations in the series include:

Nelson Illusions                                   Feb. 21

Voetberg Family Band                                   Mar. 13
