The New Kid by Dennis Foon is designed for audiences in grades K through 5, but has something for kids of all ages. The New Kid is a unique, inventive and lightheartedly playful and is wildly funny. It is a play about a boy named Nick who just moved to America from a different country. Its his first day of school, and all he wants to do is fit in with the other kids, but Nick doesnt speak their language or know any of their customs. The audience sees through Nicks eyes just how frustrating and tough it can be when you are the new kid.
Sponsored by the Alan & Jacquelin Cadkin Foundation & LCEC, The New Kid opens March 20th and plays at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center at 11am on April 10 and April 24.
