Friday, June 18, 2021

Max the Magnificent is streaming now until June 20!

Max is a kid who marches to the beat of his own drum. Taylor is Max’s new step-brother, and a bully. Max is feeling alone. How does he get Taylor to stop bullying him? How does Max reach out and make friends when no-one seems to understand him? When Xam appears out of Max's video game, Max's world is turned upside down, and this unlikely duo team up to save both their worlds, but can both be saved? There is a hero inside all of us, all it takes is believing in ourselves to find it. But sometimes you need a little help to get there.

A delightful show bursting with imagination and heart, Max the Magnificent by Chandra Pepper is streaming from now until June 20! It's the perfect night in with the family.
