An America’s Got Talent finalist from Season 8, Catapult features incredible dancers who work behind a screen to create magical shadow silhouettes of shapes from the world around us. Be amazed as you watch their bodies transform into a mountain, an elephant, a dragon, even a helicopter! You’ll never figure out how they do it, and you won’t know what they will create next – you’ll be surprised and delighted again and again. Packed with hundreds of shape transformations, the show is full of humor, emotion and engaging stories.

The Embassy presents Fort Wayne Youtheatre’s Young Heroes of Conscience Series: Ruby Bridges. Ruby Bridges was born in 1954, the same year Brown v. Board of Education ordered schools to integrate with “all deliberate speed.” Six years later, as immortalized by the famous Norman Rockwell painting, Ruby became the face of integration when she enrolled in an all-white William Frantz Elementary School. Her story shows one little girl’s unbeatable courage in the face of adversity, helping lead the Civil Rights Movement up the front steps and into America’s classrooms.
