Pollyanna Theatre presents Trouble on the Double, a play for children ages 4 – 10, on July 9 – 17 at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.
The play, by Holly Hepp-Galván, follows the story of young twins. The two may look alike, but their personalities are very different. While one is brave and not afraid to try anything, the other is timid and does not like to take any risks. Can the siblings learn to balance each other out? How much adventure is fun and how much is dangerous? The play will have audiences both thinking and laughing as the action unfolds.
“This is a play about being brave enough to accept challenges, but also being smart enough to say no when others dare us to do harmful things. It’s about balance and good decisions. And it’s also about eating hot mustard, which is the ultimate test of courage for anyone,” says playwright Hepp-Galván.
Parents, teachers and caregivers can download a free study guide to accompany the production. The guide contains an overview of the play, educational objectives and pre/post discussion questions and activities.
In addition to public performances, Trouble on the Double is also available for schools and camps throughout Central Texas.
