"In a world of Selfies and social media that can lead to kids sharing to the world at large more than they should," Dr. Holstein stated, "it is comforting to come home to the truth that kids really do have a lot of wisdom and understanding about the world. In 'The Locket', the magical drama of the theatre brings us closer to the old magic of childhood that we all once understood and were part of, while drawing us into the real dramas that adults face and have to still resolve, one day at a time."
