A crowd of about 49 people, with kids ranging in age from 2 to 12 learned about space and science during the interactive play. The show was part of a number of youth events planned at the library this summer. Also pictured are performers Kara Schultz (left), who played the mother and Brittney McHugh, who played Aquarius. The play was authored by Doren Elias.
