Tia and Natasha Bring Smiles to The National

On Saturday October 8th, The National Theatre Foundation hosted its first in person Saturday Morning Live! performance in the Helen Hayes Gallery since 2020. Artists Tia Shearer Bassett and Natasha Mirny brought smiles to children ages 3-6 and their families as they told the story of a girl who restores light to her lighthouse with the help of a sailor, a crab, a seagull, and few other friendly sea creatures. Audiences were delighted to experience the wonder of live theatre again. In particular, a few families who first attended Saturday Morning Live! as children were able to bring THEIR children to experience a show for the first time. That’s the power of this program, now in its 42nd year. See below for highlights from the show! We hope to see you at our next event with Baba Ras D for the Harambee Experience on November 12th, 2022.
