Once upon a time, there were many happy fairy tales… or so you thought. When the scripts become scrambled into a jumbled mess, Sam and Alex must find a way to present these beloved fairy tales as best they can. In “Furry Tales With A Twist,” Alex and Sam end up performing GoldiSOCKS and the Three WOLVES, the Three Billy TROLLS Gruff, and The Three Little BEARS who end up head to head with the Big Bad BILLY GOAT! Through their slapstick and charming ways, Alex and Sam guide the audience through the creative world of story structure, writing vocabulary, and theatrical staging.

Around America to Win The Vote

March 2021
Length: 60 Minutes

Based on the book “Around America to Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles” and adapted by Kelsey Hopkins

Votes for Women! The tale of Nell Richardson and Alice Burke is an empowering and inspiring story of the efforts taken to win the vote for women in America. Based on the book “Around America to Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles” by Mara Rockliff, and adapted by Kelsey Hopkins, their journey is told from the perspective of their kitten, Saxon, who made the cross-country journey with the women in their little yellow car. Braving through snow and deserts, people who did not agree with their mission, and many tires stuck in the mud, the trio took to the unmapped roads and endlessly proved to each person they encountered how women can do ANYTHING! Follow along with the journey of Nell, Alice, and Saxon during the height of the women’s suffrage movement in 1916 as they worked to spread their message across America.
