    Mary Lambert’s highly interactive musical performance is filled with music about robins, frogs, baby chicks, green grass, budding trees, and all things spring!..... We will take a musical trip to a tropical destination to escape the winter blues, and then enjoy singing about all the wonderful things that spring to life in spring right here at home! Song, dance, colourful costumes and props and LOTS of audience participation are all a part of this  performance.
