Playing Possum: A Trickster Tale From Mexico
Long ago, possums didn't look the way they do today. They were silky white and had beautiful tails with long, thick fur. And they loved to play tricks! Particularly on poor Coyote. In this retelling of Mexican folklore, we follow Possum's adventures where perhaps he plays one trick too many. Combined with Spanish language elements, this play will have children laughing while they think about what it really means to be clever. This play is by Holly Hepp-Galvan. Intended for Children in Grades K – 3.

The Ragbag Shoes
Iyana’s is turning ten years old, and she can't wait to see what kind of magic shoes her father, the shoemaker, has made for her. He makes special magic shoes for every ten-year-old boy and girl in the kingdom, and Iyana knows that hers will be the best of all. But Iyana's father has fallen on hard times and is too poor to buy new material, so he cobbles together a pair of shoes with the carefully selected scraps found in his ragbag. Iyana absolutely hates them. But to Iyana’s surprise, the shoes come alive and take her on a fantastic adventure through their patchwork past. Every scrap in her shoes has come from a fairy tale: the sole is made from the iron shoes that saved the Sleeping Prince; and the satin top was plucked from the slippers of the Twelve Dancing Princess! As Iyana’s shoes dance her from tale to tale, Iyana learns to appreciate the gift her father gave her, to both respect the history of her ragbag shoes, and feel empowered to dance the shoes into a story of her own. That what we’ve been given makes us who we are, but it does not determine what we become. The Ragbag Shoes is an unforgettable play that will have you tapping your feet as you travel through the familiar and forgotten tales of footwear. This play is by Katherine Gee Perrone. Intended for Children ages 4 – 10.
