Feared Fiend to Gentle Friend
In this hourlong adaptation, the Monster is not only sweet but also sublimely silly. Portrayed in a role greatly expanded from the book, he 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.
Wanda’s Monster will play June 25 – August 21 in our air-conditioned Soundstage Theatre.
Tuesdays 10:30 AM
