The Big Deal: ‘Last Stop On Market Street’ At Dallas Children’s Theater

by Jessica Cross 11 Mar 2020 1:30 AM

The play “Last Stop On Market Street,” is based on The New York Times bestseller and winner of won a Newbery Medal, Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor, and a Caldecott Honor. The Dallas Children’s Theater will present the family-friendly production at the Rosewood Center this month. On a Sunday after church in a bustling, ethnically and culturally diverse American city, CJ and his Nana board the public bus for their weekly trip across town to help out at a soup kitchen. Along the way, CJ notices the many differences among people and asks tons of curious questions: Why don’t we have a car? How come that man can’t see? How come it’s always so dirty over there? How?…Why?…With Nana’s fearless and compassionate guidance, CJ discovers that everyone and everything has a unique rhythm and purpose; that the world’s got answers if we listen with more than our ears and see with more than our eyes. Enter for a chance to take the family to see this inspiring story on Saturday, March 21.
