The rollicking adventures of Astrid Lindgren's red haired rascal bounds onto the stage at Wheelock Family Theatre! Pippi Longstocking is a delightful character who first appeared in a series of Swedish children's books written in 1945. Pippi's enduring appeal to young people lies in her strength and resilience in overcoming what could be seen as overwhelming obstacles. She frequently mocks and dupes the adults she encounters; however, she reserves her worst behavior for those who are pompous and condescending. Her exuberance for life and her unconventional free spirit allow her to see herself as the heroine of a great adventure. She's the strongest girl in the world, there's a pot of gold in her cupboard, and her best friend is a monkey! Pippi Longstocking is a colorful and fast-paced "tall tale", sure to entertain all ages.
Performances Friday 7PM, Saturday and Sunday at 3PM.
