It’s Okay to Be Different – Stories by Todd Parr

May 23, 2023
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Children's Festival


Ages 4-8

With his signature blend of playfulness and sensitivity, The New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Todd Parr explores big themes for little listeners. Now, Mermaid Theatre brings three of his award-winning stories to life with a diverse cast, innovative puppetry and fun, original music. It’s Okay to Be Different cleverly shares important messages of acceptance, understanding and self-confidence; The Earth Book offers a heartfelt homage to our planet and how we can help keep it healthy; and This is My Hair is a tale of silly hair and feeling good about yourself, no matter what.
