Queen Nur: Milk & Cookies

Saturday, February 04, 2023 @ 12:00pm

State Theatre New Jersey
15 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901

In “Folklore, Friends, & Fun,” storyteller Queen Nur—accompanied by international jazz drummer, Dwight James—doles out a basket full of folktales toted on a band of vibrant rhythms. Children will clap their hands and stomp their feet while singing along in this highly engaging performance. The interactive audience will have an immersive experience, participating in call and response all while learning valuable lessons.

Milk & Cookies is a lively, interactive storytelling and music series for families. This program, which takes place in our Studio, is the perfect way to introduce children ages 3-9 to live theater. Plus, includes a cookie and a carton of milk for every child after the show. The 12pm show is a Sensory-Friendly Performance, specially designed to provide a safe, welcoming environment for kids on the autism spectrum or with sensory sensitivities.


Queen Nur is a national storyteller, teaching artist, and folklorist who has performed in over 38 states, Canada, and West Africa. She is the 2020 Zora Neale Hurston Award Winner from The National Association of Black Storytellers and its 14th President serving from 2014-2015, a 2018 winner of the NJ Governor's Award in Art Education and Teaching Artist of the Year for Young Audiences of New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.
