The Roanoke Island Historical Association is gearing up for the 2019 children’s show titled “Wanda’s Monster”. This warm-hearted musical tells the story of an imaginative little girl named Wanda and her unexpected bond with a fuzzy, purple monster as she learns acceptance and friendship. Portrayed in a role greatly expanded from the book, Monster eats the flowers Wanda slips into the closet for him and attaches her artwork to the wall with his spit. While the hulking, horned monster may frighten a few little theatergoers at first, most, like Wanda, will want to hug him at the conclusion. This charming musical brings home a point worth considering at any age: embrace what you fear, and you just may find a friend.
The catching tunes and interactive show had everyone on their feet, and when we left the theatre, we were still humming “Monster Boogie” to ourselves!-Mom Blogger-The Mama Maven.
Be sure to mark your calendars, the show runs from June 25th – August 21st at the SoundStage Theatre on the grounds of The Lost Colony. Showtimes are Tuesdays at 10:30 AM and Wednesdays at 2:00 PM. Buy Tickets Here.
