VSDance presents the 4th Annual Performance of “The Secret River”
Take a journey with Calpurnia as she travels through a time in Florida not too long ago to find food for her hungry village. In her quest to find The Secret River she finds a gift more valuable than she thought. A cast of 40 children and adults make up this 90 minute performance based on a book by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings that is sure to make you laugh, cry, and dream.
