SIDNEY — Gateway Arts Council will present the Stars Within Reach Children’s Theater’s production of “Chocolate Milk por Favor,” March 9, at 7 p.m., in the Cameo Theatre, 304 S. West Ave.
The plot concerns Johnny, who is a big fan of school, but that all changes when the new kid, Gabe, arrives. Gabe doesn’t speak any English, and that doesn’t stop Johnny from going out of his way to be unkind. What will Johnny do when Gabe starts to make new friends? Will he join in the fun of making a new friend or turn the other way? Based on the book by Maria Dismondy, this heartwarming story shows how a simple act of kindness is worth more than a thousand words.
