Yet Another Thing to Do This Crazy Weekend: Bollywood at the Fox and the Childrens Museum

Posted By on Fri, Oct 21, 2011 at 10:00 AM

If you're bored in Tucson this weekend ... you need help. Serious help.

In addition to the Luz de Vida launch party going on at the Rialto; all the arts openings happening thanks to the Tucson Rocks! collaboration; and about a bazillion other things, the Childrens Museum Tucson and the Fox Tucson Theatre are hosting a day of Bollywood fun (cliche alert!) for the whole family.

Bollykids presents FAME: The Family Arts and Music Experience kicks off at noon at the Childrens Museum, 200 S. Sixth Ave., with entertainment, arts-and-crafts activities and Bollywood culture. Then, at 2:30, the party moves to the Fox, for a live performance of Childsplay called Tomás and the Library Lady:

In Tomás and the Library Lady, Tomás loves the stories. Grandfather tells them every night during the long summers, when the family leaves Texas to pick crops in Iowa. But soon Tomás knows all the stories by heart, and that’s when Papa Grande tells him there is a place full of stories he’s never heard before: the library. When Tomás meets the library lady, nothing is ever the same again. Based on Pat Mora’s popular book by the same name, the play tells the true story of Tomás Rivera, who began his life as a migrant worker and ended it as a university chancellor, Tomás and the Library Lady celebrates the wonder of reading.

The fun is being presented by Neelam Sethi , creator of "Bollywood at yhe Fox," and her husband, Dr. Gulshan Sethi.

Best of all: The whole event is free. Get more info here.
