New Kid

Theatre of Youth, in collaboration with the Historic Palace Theatre Presents: New Kind an original play by Dennis Foon.
After moving from Homeland to America, Nick and his family are settling into a new way of life. Starting in a new school, Nick’s hopes of making new friends vanish after his classmate make fun of his clothes, lunch, and his confusion about almost everything. Worst of all, Nick doesn’t speak the language. In a clever theatrical twist, New Kid immediately puts us into Nick’s shoes; he and his family speak English while the other children speak gibberish. The play explores issues of moving to a new place and being the outsider. For today’s students, New Kid is a timely story the explores acceptance inclusion and change.

As Theatre of Youth beings its 46th year of tending the creative wellbeing of children, we are proud and honored to bring New Kid to Lockport and Niagara County.
