The Bay Area Children’s Theatre presents The Day You Begin in the Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. This musical is adapted from acclaimed titles by Jaqueline Woodson.

There will be times when it’s not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet … but somehow, you do it. This West Coast premiere musical is based on Jacqueline Woodson’s most popular picture books, a #1 New York Times bestseller illustrated by Rafael López, and featured in its own episode in the Netflix original show Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices.

The Day You Begin is a poignant and heartening musical about finding the courage to connect, even when you feel afraid.

Performances happen on Saturday and Sunday, March 18, 2023 and March 19, 2023, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
