Olive & Pearl is the story of a young girl, Olive, who is lovingly being raised by her Granny, Pearl. Throughout their day the characters play, go on an imaginary journey to the moon, sing songs, and dance.  Magical, visual, stimulating, and oftentimes funny, Olive & Pearl is a supportive performance first for the very young. Additional characters are portrayed through puppetry. The original and live music score by Anthony Rizzo combines traditional string instruments and melodies of Bluegrass, Irish Fiddle, and lullabies.  Toddlers to 5 years old.

This event is part of the New York State Presenters Network Presenter-Artist Partnership Project made possible through a regrant from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
