August 2007


Best for young people ages 4 - 10 and their families.

Area schools and local audiences loved Pollyanna's 2005 production of PATTERNS. People are still asking about the characters, Blue, Green, Yellow, and that extra-wild Red. The colors of the rainbow are back for more fun storytelling and even more ways to explore pattern recognition through theatrical exploration of the patterns found all around us in nature, music and human behavior.
