Sylvester and the Magic Pebble at the Brooklyn Center

The Brooklyn Center presents Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, a heartwarming story  that celebrates the importance of family.

Sylvester and The Magic Pebble Synopsis: Based on the Caldecott Medal-winning book by William Steig, author of Shrek, Sylvester, a winsome young donkey, picks up a shiny red pebble, he learns it holds magical powers, granting his every wish. Sometimes, magic works very well — he can turn the rain on and off! but it can also work against him, like when he turns himself into a rock to escape a hungry lion. How will he escape from the rock? How will his loving family ever find him? Will he ever get home? This brand new adaptation of William Steig’s heartwarming story utilizes life-size puppets, masked actors, magical illusions, and an original musical score to follow Sylvester’s brave journey.
