FEARED FIEND TO GENTLE FRIEND
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. Join us for Wanda’s Monster in the air-conditioned SoundStage Theatre at The Lost Colony.
