Description: Based on the book by Eleanor Estes, this lively musical is a poetic tale that explores the power of imagination and the courage it takes to stand up for others, even when you are standing alone. This timeless story follows Wanda Petronski, a young girl who speaks strangely, lives in the wrong part of town, and wears the same dress to school every day. While Wanda struggles to fit in and make friends at Franklin Elementary, Maddie, a fellow student, comes to understand that some of the worst bullies in the world throw no blows. "The Hundred Dresses" takes audiences on a colorful journey filled with buoyant music, zany characters, plenty of charm, humor, and - you guessed it - dresses.
