March 14 – June 6
Story Hour with Jenny
Interactive book readings for grades K–3
Tickets starting at $10
Running Time: ~ 1 hour

Some stories are told on the stage. And some stories are told on the page. 

Looking for a fun way for your kids to make new friends and engage in storytelling? Join us for Story Hour with Jenny — interactive readings of social justice-themed picture books for kids in grades K–3! These books will center around the four pillars of our education department — empathy, collaboration, activism and literacy — and are all written and illustrated by BIPOC artists.

Not only will kids get to engage with Jenny — and each other — but we’ll send you a copy of the book we’ll read together for each ticket purchased, plus a bonus activity booklet and crayons! All readings take place over Zoom and are limited to ten children or families per session. All ticketholders will receive an email with a Zoom link for their session two hours prior to the start of each reading. All books are purchased from People Get Ready, a Black-owned community bookspace in New Haven.

The Playhouse is committed to making our educational programming accessible to all children in our community and beyond. To make this a reality, we have  pay-what-you-can tickets starting at just $10! For those who are able, there is the option to add a donation towards the cost of providing a book for another child.

Log in to your Playhouse account to get your tickets! For more help, check out our digital content FAQ page.
