In this new collection of plays based on the stories of Robert Munsch, experienced playwright Irene Watts has adapted eight of his best-loved tales for the stage, classroom or backyard! Complemented by funny, energetic illustrations, including those of long-time Munsch collaborator Michael Martchenko, each story is presented in an accessible play format, making it easy for children to act out their own versions of the adventures of Angela, Elizabeth, Mortimer, and others.

These lively, interactive adaptations include suggestions to encourage audience participation, as well as casting ideas that can involve the whole class. Innovative, uncomplicated (and inexpensive!) ideas for props and costumes can also be found. The stories included are:

  • Angela's Airplane
  • Stephanie's Ponytail
  • Mortimer
  • 50 Below Zero
  • Mud Puddle
  • Millicent and The Wind
  • Murmel, Murmel, Murmel
  • The Paper Bag Princess
