KOTA Productions presents a stage adaptation of Eleanor Estes’ beloved 1945 children's novel about a bullied but creative young girl. Performed by a cast of professional adult and child actors.
Wanda Petronski is a Polish girl in a Connecticut school who is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she does not. This timeless tale addresses the hurt inflicted by teasing and the painful consequences for bystanders who fail to act courageously when they have the power to make a change. Audiences are encouraged to bring gently used dresses to contribute to the production's clothing drive. Best for ages 4 and up.
