2013 Kids Euro Festival
‘Beloved Daughter’, ‘Snowflake’ and PDA/Little Animated Doodles at KIDS Euro Festival.
As part of the 2013 Kids Euro Festival in the Nation’s capital, the Marie de Jongh theatrical company brings this tale of a family that grows closer together in the wake of unthinkable hardship. The difficulties unveil a formerly grouchy father’s tenderness and love in this show that the whole family will enjoy. The company will perform in Washington, D.C. and New York City to bring Spanish theater to U.S. school children and the general public.
Don’t forget to attend other Spanish events at Kids Euro Festival this year, including the movie Snowflake, the White Gorilla and master class and workshops on animation by PDA/Little Animated Doodles.
