Synopsis

Tested and perfected before many audiences, this enchanting show has been acclaimed both by children and by critics including a selection by the Los Angeles Times as one of the best shows of the year! It's a "magical" production in which actors suddenly say "I'm fire!" or "I'm a yellow submarine" and then portray what they've said. But in the midst of the fun there's substance, too, and as the Times critic suggests, "It's a children's show which celebrates the joys and dilemmas of childhood's anarchy." Especially helpful notes and directions are included as is a musical accompaniment that may be played on a guitar.
