2:00 PM Stage: Yo, Vikings! When spunky, imaginative Emma Katz is assigned the viking Erik the Red for her World Discovery Day report, she begins to channel her inner Viking, setting off on a real adventure and changing her community for the better. Every time Emma learns something new she wants to become that thing, whether it's a dinosaur, a fox or a paramecium! Her teacher is afraid to teach anything new for fear of what she might become. Luckily, a wise librarian inspires Emma to uncover the magic of the Vikings in books, and helps her release the inspiration of the Vikings to make dreams come true.

Adapted from Judith Byron Schachner's acclaimed book of the same name, Yo, Vikings! is the mini-saga of 10-year-old Emma Katz, the fiercest Viking in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, and her quest for real adventure. Yo, Vikings! combines sweeping melodies, thrilling Viking chants and funky rock 'n roll with a beautiful, heart-warming story to engage and excite every member of the family.
