1 year ago, Hiawatha Project premiered “My Traveling Song” an interactive new musical made especially for children, and the grown-ups who love them. “My Traveling Song” was conceived and created out of a need to find joy and connection between young children and caregivers during uncertain or even scary times.
This play seems even more relevant today, and for these reasons, Hiawatha will offer a free interactive online viewing of “My Traveling Song” from noon on Friday, April 3rd – noon on Sunday, April 5th, 2020.
First please watch this short video and learn how you and your loved ones can best participate while watching “My Traveling Song!” online! Hear suggestions about the simple tools you can gather to catch “raindrops,” make “falling leaves” and hold your candles up to light the way!
Last April, all 14 performances of ‘My Traveling Song” were completely sold out! So this is your chance to snuggle up and enjoy the show in the comfort of your own home.
Here is the link to access the free interactive online performance of “My Traveling Song” which will be available for 48-hours only, from noon on Friday, April 3rd – noon on Sunday, April 5th, 2020.

Here is a list of items to gather so that you can get into the action!
- A bucket or bowl with some clean kinetic sand, regular sand, pebbles, maybe some beans or rice – just something you can “dig” into.
- A fan – electric, or you can make one out of a piece of paper.
- Paper leaves – cut out some leaves from paper. The lighter the paper, like tissue paper, the better.
- A small spray bottle – filled with clean water to make your own “raindrops”
- An umbrella or raincoat – to be sprayed for “rain.”
- A battery-operated candle or small flashlight – to hold up together.
