Absorbing, Intelligent, Must see, Relevant, Resonant

See it if It's an important show addressing issues that need to be addressed with children, adults, teachers and more.

Don't see it if You aren't able to see a story involving gender issues and how today's planet needs to think in new ways to make it a safe world for all

Ambitious, Quirky, Relevant

See it if you're looking for a piece of queer children's theater

Don't see it if you want a more mature/adult-oriented production; this is clearly written for children.

Clever, Delightful, Resonant, Inventive, Meaningful

See it if you have children who could better understand "trans." It's written well enough to not feel informational. Great staging. Awesome props.

Don't see it if you'd struggle with unpolished talent, recorded accompaniments overwhelming the voices, or you don't like shows for elementary kids.

Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if If you care about LGBTQ issues or trans/non-binary youth, if you like fantasy or more modern/experimental productions.

Don't see it if If you are transphobic/homophobic or prefer more traditional productions.
