Underground Railroad, Not a Subway (FREE Kids Show)

In this puppet performance, experience the story of a young boy who decides to escape slavery through the Underground Railroad. On his bold journey, the boy encounters free blacks, whites who are willing to help, and slave catchers.
Featuring a variety of puppets — rod puppets, hand puppets, and wood cut-outs — constructed by Schroeder Cherry, young audiences will learn the true definition of the Underground Railroad and how it got its name.
Presented with Arts for Learning Maryland. FREE with no tickets required! Recommended for ages 6 and up.
