Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe's Rhythm & Tales welcomes little ones to a lively place where all are valued, and lessons are learned through engaging fables like The Alligators and the Flamingos that teach young children about kindness, understanding and doing the right thing.



Hebert the alligator only wants alligators to swim in Lodi Swamp, but Terrell the flaming knows that isn't fair.  In this musical adventure, Terrell and friends will teach Herbert and his friends a thing or two about acceptance.
