Step into a world of jesters, kings, scheming ministers… and a magical boy who discovers that when he sings for people, spectacular pictures appear in the sky that reflect the truth of the world and people around him. Masterful storyteller David Gonzalez, along with musical accompaniment, takes students on a highly entertaining journey straight to their own hearts, as they witness how kindness and empowerment can overcome cruelty and lies.


“[With The Boy Who Could Sing Pictures] David Gonzalez has created another masterpiece for young and old alike. Serving up a generous portion of his keen musicality and deeply rooted, elegant physicality, David’s adaptation of Seymour Leichman’s story is as timely as it is timeless.  ‘This was a story I didn’t want to end,’ said a youngster next to me in our multi-generational audience whose members leapt to their feet, excitedly applauding Gonzalez and his brilliant pianist, Daniel Kelly.”

—Kajsa Thuresson-Frary, Director of Education, McCallum Theatre in CA
