Adventure for the child in all of us. By Patricia Thackray. Based on the Bobs-Merrill book.
Cast: 6m., 6w. (flexible, extras.) Raggedy Ann, America's most endearing and enduring folk doll, comes to life in a production that captures the imagination. This free-wheeling romp combines simple inventive staging with an action-packed plot and lively audience participation. Through it all shines the gentle, loving spirit of Raggedy Ann. The story unfolds in a special playroom where wonderful, magical events transpire. A newcomer has arrived in the playroom, a fancy French doll named Babette. But that very evening, a certain prince Leonard-the-Looney-Hearted comes riding by on his hobby horse and whisks her away to Looney-land. Raggedy Ann knows what she must do! She and Andy climb out the window into the "deep, deep woods" to fetch Babette back home. (Patricia Thackray co-authored the animated feature-length film.) One int., one ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 80 minutes.
