Follow Peter and his friends through winter, spring, summer and fall as they romp and play, start snow ball fights and make snow angels, journey in space and under the sea, and more, all in this imaginative musical play. Using innovative shadow puppetry, The Snowy Day celebrates the magic and boundless possibilities of childhood and the challenges of growing up.

Keats’ treasured characters come to life in this humorous and fun adaptation of the collected stories: Whistle for Willie, Goggles!, A Letter to Amy, and The Snowy Day.  A classic since its publication in 1962 and winner of the Caldecott Medal, The Snowy Day was one of the first picture books for young people to feature an African American protagonist and is still beloved today.
