New Kid is a play the whole family will enjoy. The performance, presented by Metro Theatre Company and performed at the Missouri History Museum, explores the immigrant experience through the eyes of a boy named Nick. He doesn't speak the language or know the customs. He's an easy target for bullying.
His mother tries to help, but she is struggling with her own issues of assimilation in this strange new place that doesn't feel like home to either one of them. New Kid speaks to anyone who has ever felt new.
It's a story for the entire family (recommended for ages 7 and up) about being new, being different, being bullied and finding a friend.
Free. Saturday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. At the Missouri History Museum Lee Auditorum.
