i scream, Hope Stone Dance Company’s fourth annual Lemonade Stand, complete with popsicles and frozen treats! Based loosely (and we mean loosely) on Edvard Munch’s famous painting, Macaulay Culkin’s 15 minutes of fame, and America’s endless love of ice cream, this piece is quite the desperate journey into getting what we want.

say please and thank you is a nod to PBS’ 1970′s educational show The Electric Company – designed especially for children, with adults in mind. The performance gently guides children to interpret art through their own eyes.
