MORE THAN CHILD’S PLAY

Inspired by the life of doctor, teacher and author Janusz Korczak (1879-1942), Jeffrey Hatcher’s “Korczak’s Children” is a play about and for children, based in part upon the orphanage Korczak founded in 1912, which was moved to the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. Korczak’s ideas about children’s empowerment would help lay the foundation for the League of Nations’ 1929 Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Korczak, along with his orphanage’s children, were killed at Treblinka in 1942.

The Children’s Theatre Company, 2400 Third Ave. S., Minneapolis; through April 19, please call for times; $15-$38, $9-$22 students and seniors. (612-874-0400 or www.childrenstheatre.org)
