Join Millennium Stage for these monthly “live radio theater” productions, which mix original scripts with music and sound effects and are recorded for broadcast on XM Satellite Radio’s Kids Channel. This month, young people and their families can enjoy a humorous adaptation of The Fisherman and His Wife.
