Smarties, the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte newest production, the world premiere of Grace for President, is coming to town. The timing couldn’t be any more perfect with the upcoming presidential election. If you ever wanted to teach your children about the Electoral College, government, democracy…. This is for you!
Check out these book reviews…
“DiPucchio and Pham are game gals. Explaining the electoral system to adults isn’t easy, but they made it understandable to kids.”
“…the book delivers lessons on electoral votes, polls and the reason every vote counts.”
-New York Times
If these are the book reviews, can you imagine how amazing the CTC’s performance is going to be? They are masterful on bringing stories to life. I am super excited!
