This fun play with a positive message about curiosity, bravery, and enchantment is perfect for first time performers entering grades 3-5.  There are parts for those looking to learn lines as well as for those looking to experience just being on stage. Many hands make light work, so older children looking to work as production assistants are welcome to join the crew!  We’ll need a cast of ten children with lots of room for more (a commitment to attend all dates is strongly encouraged for a speaking part in the play)!  No materials cost, but be prepared for homework and a performance!
