True Colors of Weedle  | Open: 03/22/14 Close: 04/12/14
The True Colors of Weedle is a fun musical about a boy, born without any color. As such, he is bullied because everyone else around him has lots of colors. Ostracized, Weedle sets out to find a three-headed companion and together they hatch a plan for revenge on those who hurt them. After taking revenge, Weedle feels so bad that he cries. And to everyone's amazement, his tears are full of vibrant colors, proving that he had it within himself all the time..
Bullying has become an epidemic, causing many children pain. Our story confronts this issue in a fun-filled way, without shying away from the issue at hand. Perhaps, this show is needed now more than ever!
