Celebrate the joy in the seasons of a child’s world!


The wonder of a fresh snowfall, the delight of whistling for the first time, the awe in finding a special treasure comes to life in The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats. This story celebrates the joy of the seasons through a child’s eyes

A timeless classic, The Snowy Day is the most checked-out volume of all time at the New York Public Library and is known for being the first book featuring an African American child to win the Caldecott Medal (The Atlantic). This new ensemble-driven production will explore connections to water and the changing of the seasons through movement and storytelling.

Age Recommendation:
This show is specifically designed for PreK through Grade 4, but the whole family will enjoy the wonder!

Run Time:
Approximately 50 minutes with no intermission.


  • General Audience: $16 child | $20 adult
  • School Matinees: $16 per ticket. 1 free chaperone ticket for every 20 paid. Discounts available based on financial need.


December 10: Sensory Friendly performance

This performance includes accommodations for those with sensory needs. Participants can check out ear defenders or fidgets in the lobby or utilize our comfort room, which includes low lighting, comfortable chairs, and sensory activities.  Audio and visual adjustments have been made for this production; house lights stay at 30% or above and volume levels have been lowered.

Also available is a social story (See the bottom of this page!) to ensure participants know what to expect at the theatre.

This performance is made possible by The Heart and Mind Fund and the Awesome Foundation.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

At SteppingStone, we are committed to access and inclusion for all people. We stand firmly in opposition to racism, and our programs challenge our young artists, staff, and Board of Directors to foster inclusion and seek equity for all, including Black people, Indigenous peoples, people of color, LGBTQIA+ people, people of all economic backgrounds, people of all religions, and people with disabilities. SteppingStone collaborates with families to meet students’ needs, whether they are social, academic, developmental, or physical.

We Believe

Young people are artists, makers, and doers. They need to belong and to contribute to their world. When young people make art together, they change themselves and the world around them for the better.

We Do

SteppingStone ignites belonging, generosity, mastery, self-advocacy, and inspiration by creating art with young people to share with the world.
