Cleland Theatre filled with childhood laughter

Curtain comes down on last show of season for Children’s Showcase

The Children’s Showcase wrapped up their current season Sunday with children’s delighted laughter filling Cleland Theatre, as the kids watched Sarah Roa and William Ford Hopkin of Axis Theatre retell the classic story of Robinson Crusoe + Friday.

With a very light heart and some major comedic misunderstandings, along with a subtle lesson about becoming friends with people that we may not understand at first, as Friday (Roa) and the sometimes bumbling Crusoe (Hopkin) learn from each other about communicating.
