Monsters come in all shapes and sizes, but have you ever encountered a monster made of mud? Or a monster that will become your guardian angel? A Golem is such a creature from Jewish folklore. Join us for this modern adaptation of a classic folktale as we use music and puppetry to explore how a young immigrant child from Brooklyn finds magic in everyday life. Presented by Urban Stages. For ages 5 and older.
