Plus you get to see the fan favorite Planet Dartruda!

Here is the story:

PLANET DARTRUDA by Jacari R., Taniya J., Nakiya B.

We see toilet paper like a teddy bear. And we see little people
bothering a chicken egg. We see little bumble bees stinging people. It
is hot like the desert and sometimes cold- freezing and so hot at the
same time. It changes quickly like our world when it used to be sunny.
The sun on this planet is polka dot and orange. The chicken egg is
cracking and the chicken inside might die unless a bee stings the
little people.  THE END.

Say “little bumble bees stinging people” at the box office and get discounted tickets!

See you at the show!
