The Elevator Family
by Douglas Evans
When the quirky Wilson family goes on vacation, they visit a nice hotel -- and then decide to take up residence in the elevator. They quickly turn their tiny space into a cozy home nicknamed "Otis" where they play pick-up sticks, have meals delivered and entertain guests. All are welcome in the Wilsons' tiny mobile room, and as they move up and down they help everyone they meet, including a love-struck bellhop, an over-scheduled old lady and a lonely salesman. But when the Wilsons suspect that a kidnapped girl may be hidden in the hotel, they may face their biggest challenge yet.

Have You Filled a Bucket Today
by Ann Marie Gardinier Halstad
Based on Carol McCloud’s award-winning books, the play tells the story of Trey, a fourth grader who learns about bucket filling from his camp counselor Mimi, Professor Smarty Pants III and Bucket Filling Fairy (BFF), a magical creature who speaks in rhyme. This theatrical adaptation is a fun, humorous and effective way for schools and theatre companies to address bullying.
