Childsplay performs in Goodyear
(Goodyear, AZ – April 11) The City of Goodyear presents a performance of "With Two Wings" by award-winning theater company Childsplay at 7 p.m. Friday, May 4 at Estrella Foothills High School, 13033 S. Estrella Parkway. The play is free and suggested for children in grades one through six.
"With Two Wings" shows us a fantastical world of winged creatures through the eyes of Lyf, a young boy who has grown up sheltered from the outside by his differently-abled parents. Safe in their nest, protected by a series of strict rules, Lyf has never even thought about trying to fly. Audiences of all ages will connect with Lyf's struggle to stand up for himself and figure out who he really wants to be. This heartwarming story about a child's instinct to grow and a parent's instinct to protect holds an unexpected twist that will leave audiences smiling for days.
Childsplay is a Tempe-based, professional non-profit theatre company of adult actors, performing for young audiences and families. The performance is funded by a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
