A Virtual Chilren's Tour

The Bank of America Children's Tour has moved to an entirely virtual format for Fall 2020.

Virtual performances are available for a 48-hour time frame of your choosing, October 19 - December 11, 2020, to any educational initiative including, public and private schools, homeschooling groups, and libraries.


Description

Danny, King of the Basement tells the story of 10-year-old Danny "Delco" Carter. Danny is the "king of moving." In two years, he and his mother, who is dealing with unemployment, have moved more times than most kids lose teeth. But far from being overcome by his homelessness, Danny appears to be thriving. When Danny moves into a basement apartment on upscale Clinton Street, the kids he meets have more material things, but they seem to have bigger problems than just being hungry.

This heartwarming story about a boy who creates an imaginary world to deal with the instability and hardship of his daily life is a powerful, yet playful, production that truthfully explores issues related to child poverty and homelessness and ultimately demonstrates how the power of friendship can change lives.

Captivate your students’ imagination by inviting Danny and the Bank of America Children’s Tour into your learning space for a virtual performance. Recommended for grades 2 through 5. Classroom study guides are provided prior to each performance to enhance student learning and include an in depth video program to help students build resiliency in their own lives. Live virutal talkbacks with the cast for an engaging question and answer session are available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at no extra cost. Reserve your spot now.
