Red, Ripe, and Round

CHILDREN’S COMEDY WITH SONG. This play is a fun way for children to learn more about American history through the unlikely history of one of our favorite foods: the tomato.

Kids will love rapping along with the Tomato Revue and learning fun tomato facts.

Well, you’ll just have to wait and see…
