Cast: 2m., 2w. (7m. Or w.) Abruptly—without warning—early one sometime, Hucklebee is rudely awakened and ordered to begin the journey of his life—the journey that is his life: the journey up Rhyming Mountain. And as Hucklebee makes his way he meets the fantastic denizens of the mountain: Stuffy Steadfast, who has turned to stone because of being afraid to take chances; Busy Does-It, an oddly beaver-like creature who confuses busyness with purposefulness; and others. And from each of these characters, Hucklebee strives mightily to learn—and to avoid making the mistakes that have doomed them. Until, finally, he reaches the pinnacle of Rhyming Mountain and meets the Wise Rhymer in person—and is told the secret of it all. Flexible staging. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
