By Tom McCoy.
Cast: 13 and up, either sex. This play-within-a-play has trees that talk, a wall that moves, a witch who can't cackle, angry villagers whose children have been kidnapped by the witch, a sleepy lion, and a clown who wears polka-dot shorts. All of this appears with theatrical magic when a mysterious Wish Peddler arrives on the stage offering your cast the fulfillment of whatever wishes they'll buy. Bare stage w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
