The Story of Ferdinand


Monday, March 1 at 9:50am

The Story of Ferdinand by Bernardo Cubria, original book by Munro Leaf, illustrated by Robert Lawson.

Join us in the timeless classic The Story of Ferdinand. Ferdinand grew up around the other young bulls who aspired to be the fiercest bulls, and would “run and jump and butt their heads together, but not Ferdinand.” Ferdinand would rather sit under his favorite tree smelling the flowers than fight — a lesson for the ages. With the help of his mother, who believed in him, and the little bee, who nearly changed his life, Ferdinand keeps true to who he is and who he always wanted to be. This musical will inspire young audiences to read and always follow their dreams.

Curriculum Connections: Theatre Arts, Communication Analysis, Aesthetics, Culture

All Durham Public Schools (DPS) reservations will be made by the school-designated Arts Liaison. The Arts Liaison was appointed by each school principal to coordinate this effort. Please contact your principal for further action. Please note: We received funding specifically for a limited number of complimentary tickets for Durham Public Schools students to attend Arts Discovery Educational Series performances.
