Childsplay, Tempe’s award-winning theatre for young audiences and families, will preview the world premiere of With Two Wings on January 22 at the Tempe Center for the Arts. The play by Anne Negri, tells the story of Lyf whose overprotective parents have kept him safe in their nest and not allowed him to learn to fly. One day, a hilarious pair of fast-talking twins who have skipped “flock” school burst into their lives challenging everything Lyf thought he knew. Will his parents’ secret reason for protecting him be enough to keep him from the skies?
Tempe also offers some great music this week ranging from jazz to classical to country-western to hip hop and more. View a complete listing of Tempe events, or call 480-894-8158 for more information.
