The Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings
Adapted by Nellie McCaslin
Directed by Jan McKillip


From the Dramatic Publishing Company:

This play for very young audiences is based on a charming southern folktale. It tells the story of Little Rabbit, who envies all the other animals he meets in the forest. Finally, a fairy grants him his wish for a beautiful pair of red wings like the bird. When Rabbit discovers that he cannot fly and that even his mother doesn't recognize him, he understands and accepts his role as a rabbit. The wings disappear and his mother welcomes him in a warm embrace. The simple plot, credible animal characters and theme make this an ideal choice for children from 4 to 8.

The Elephant's Child
Adapted from a story by Rudyard Kipling
Directed by Linda Rickel


From Storynory.:

IN the High and Far-Off Times the Elephant, O Best Beloved, had no trunk. He had only a blackish, bulgy nose, as big as a boot, that he could wriggle about from side to side; but he could not pick up things with it.

The young elephant hero is full of questions. Why is his tall uncle the giraffe so spotty? Why are the eyes of his broad aunt the Hippopotamus so red? Above all, he wants to know what the crocodile has for dinner. And in the end we learn how the elephant got his trunk.
