At the 5th Avenue Theater
On Saturday, October 5th 2013
2:00 PM matinee performance
With audio description by Tony Brown!
Secondhand Lions tells the story of Walter, a young boy who is sent to spend a lonely summer on his great uncles’ Texas ranch. Thanks to their tall tales of beguiling princesses, heroic rescues and hidden treasure, Walter has the adventure of a lifetime and learns more than a little about love and family. You’ll be captivated by the fresh and inventive music and the audio description that brings the visuals of swashbuckling swordplay to life.
The 5th Avenue Theater is centrally located in downtown Seattle at 1308 5th Avenue between Union and University Streets.
Vision Loss Connections is a non-profit organization that offers Arts and Cultural Access to people of all ages in the blind and low vision community.
