In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month on Wednesday, The Miracle Center presented a theatrical adaptaion of “There’s a Coqui in My Shoe” an award winning children’s book written by Marisa de Jesus Paolicelli. The story was based on a coqui, Puerto Rico’s national treasure. I am sure your children came home and shared their experience with you! If not, be sure to ask them. This weekend is the final show! Also, TMC (The Miracle Center) has generously discounted the tickets for Waters Famililes for $5.00 each. If you looking for a great family event this Friday evening or Saturday evening, this would be a great family outing.
Tickets are available at www.themiraclecenter.org and the discount code is:
Use the promo code "coqui" for Saturday’s matinee.
Use promo code "coqui5" for any show Friday, Oct. 12th - Oct. 13th to get tickets for $5
2nd and 4th grade parents- we made an adjustment in the entry/exit location for your children. Please be on the look out for an email from your teacher. Due to safety concerns, we made a much needed adjustment.
