It sure seems like we all spend a lot of time standing in line, waiting on hold, or sitting in waiting rooms! And when we finish waiting in one place, we have to hurry up to get to our next location. Hurry Up and Wait takes our youngest patrons on a journey that is sometimes fast and sometimes slow but always requires patience.

Young children will relate to her characters that explore the world around them with childlike presence and honesty. This play is by Kathleen Fletcher and is approximately 35-40 in length.
