Synopsis

The authors of the musical version of The Hundred Dresses have rewritten the musical as a one-act straight play that's perfect for competition! Wanda Petronski, a second-grader, lives way up in a shabby house in Boggins Heights, and she doesn't have any friends. Every day she wears a faded blue dress, but she tells her classmates that she has a hundred dresses at home of all fabrics and colors. Soon Maddie, Peggy, Jack and their classmates make a game of teasing Wanda about her hundred dresses until one day she disappears from school, leaving just an empty seat where she once sat. As feelings of guilt overtake the children, Maddie and the others decide they must find out what happened to Wanda and make amends for the way they treated her. But is it too late? Bullying, friendship and forgiveness are all touched upon in this beloved Newbery Honor Book by Eleanor Estes.

Customer Reviews

"This show is so needed in our modern day world. Our children that we see everyday, are facing the same struggles as Wanda Petronski. This show has opened the eyes of my students, and have made them excited for theatre's return after COVID-19."
Review by Dakota Stockton, Creekland Middle School, Lawrenceville, Ga.
"Our group really enjoyed putting on this production! We have 12 kids ranging from 7-17 and there were fun and meaningful moments in the script for everyone. The message is valuable for kids of all ages and it’s a really enjoyable show for parents as well. The set and prop requirements are very achievable for a smaller budget and the lines are not too complex for younger actors."
Review by Vincent Edwards, New Baltimore Youth Theatre, New Baltimore, Mich.
