Drum roll please, Lilly's coming. This mouse has more spunk than Mighty Mouse and Mickey Mouse combined. She's the Queen of the World - just ask her. Hide your cheesy snacks, everyone.
The 2005 American Stage School Tour Production, "Lilly's Purple Purse," is an entertaining tale of learning to cope with feelings, accepting change, handling conflict and embracing individuality.
A study guide, following the Sunshine State Standards for educators, enabling them to make the show an active part of their curriculum, accompanies the production. In addition, the cast provides a question and answer session for student audience members following each performance.
The American Stage School Tour will reach more than 9,000 kindergarten through fifth grade students in more than 55 schools in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties - some of whom will be experiencing live theatre for the first time. In addition, the School Tour will give free performances for facilities such as All Children's Hospital, The Royal Theatre Boys and Girls Club, and participate in festivals such as First Night St. Petersburg.
