Bank of America Children's Tour presents New Kid 2015

Nick just immigrated to America from a country called Homeland and is struggling with a new language and a new way of life. The kids at his new school make fun of him because of his customs and strange language. The twist is...in New Kid the Americans speak a kind of gibberish that neither Nick nor the Audience understand. New Kid promotes tolerance, compassion and addresses racism, prejudice, peer pressure and conflict resolution.
