It’s only one purple crayon, but it takes little Harold on plenty of adventures. Children of all ages can follow Harold’s walk through the world he draws at the Valentine Theatre’s Family series show Harold and the Purple Crayon. This 67-year-old classic will be made into a Pixar movie in 2017, so now is the time to see Harold and his special crayon in person. Kids will love the puppets and masks, and parents will appreciate the message of using one’s imagination.
The Valentine Theatre, 410 Adams St., Toledo. Sunday, January 25, at 2pm or at the Theater’s School Days program on Monday, January 26 at 10am and 12:15pm.
