December 28 is the night we have our appreciation dinner for our Century III donors, plus we have entertainment all the way from Chicago! Justin Roberts, a four-time GRAMMY Nominee, is one of the founders of the modern family music scene. For 25 years, Roberts has been creating the soundtrack to families’ lives, helping kids navigate the joys and sorrows of growing up, while inspiring parents to remember their own childhoods. His songs are the kind of get-stuck-in-your-head pop nuggets that draw comparisons to Elvis Costello, Fountains of Wayne, and Paul Simon rather than simple nursery rhymes, prompting USA Today to call him “hands-down the best songwriter in the genre. Along with his band, The Not Ready for Naptime Players, Justin has traveled the globe, from Hong Kong to New York, and Miami to Seattle. His latest album, Space Cadet, is a return to his power pop all-
ages sound. Heavily inspired by his life as a new dad, the feel-good album offers themes of inclusion and acceptance that wind through emotionally intelligent songs. Roberts creates a welcoming space for children to celebrate their uniqueness and dance it all out.
Please plan to join us for Nights of Christmas on December 27, 28 and 29. The program begins at 7 pm each evening with our special entertainment and returning 2022 summer staff. Enjoy coffee, cookies and fellowship each evening before heading home.
