In a world where diversity is the center of our conversations, our actions and uniqueness, "Journey to Appleville" offers a refreshing tale of multiculturalism. Filled with a mission to entertain families and children everywhere, Appleville is a place of opportunity; where every child can be who they want to be, learn what they want to learn and earn a golden apple for their determination.
