The Secret of the Soap and Spin
Ten-year-old Vic’s mother is missing. It turns out that an out-of-order dryer at the neighborhood laundromat is the portal to a secret, underground world populated by those who have escaped the normal world above. These include Lint, Dusty (a vengeful dust bunny), and a worn-out Mop. Is Vic’s mother there, too? Vic is about to find out — with help from The Broom, a handheld whisk, and a Basket. A metaphor for the opioid crisis, this play explores the struggle to recover from addiction, both for the addicted and those they’ve left behind. This play is intended for children grades 2 - 5.
If Wishes Were Fishes
Sarah, Johnny, and Felicia are best friends. They can’t wait to get together every day! They play the best games and always support and encourage each other. One day, when they’re playing, they find a magic fish tangled in a net. The magic fish says that if they free him, he’ll grant them three wishes – one wish each. And that is when the trouble starts. In Hepp-Galvan's hilarious new play, these friends (and our young audience) learn to be grateful for what you have, to always appreciate the wonderful people in your life, and to be wary of talking fish. This play is intended for children ages 4 - 9. By Award-Winning Playwright Holly Hepp-Galvan
