PJ Families Symphony Storytime with Orlando Philharmonic
Sunday, Feb 23 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Join our PJ Orlando families as the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s woodwind quintet presents the iconic story of Hansel and Gretel. We’ll experience the musical retelling of the story of two curious children who suddenly find themselves lost in the woods when their paths cross with a mysterious witch. Follow the children on their journey and the many lessons they learn along the way in this classic German fairy tale. Through their harrowing adventure, Hansel and Gretel exhibit two important Jewish Values: 1. “ometz lev” courage/trusting oneself, and 2. “optimiyut” optimism/problem-solving.
After the concert, children (ages 3 to 8 recommended) will enjoy hands-on activities in The Plaza Live lobby. A Toddler Zone for newborns to children up to the age of two is also available.
Our storytime tickets are generously gifted to our PJ Orlando families by a donation from our Friends of PJ Library Orlando, Edward and Marian Bromberg. Online registration is required and a $2.00 non-refundable registration fee for each person over the age of 2 will be collected at registration. Tickets are available on a limited first-come first serve basis and will be closed when the maximum number of participants have signed up.
