Bears, raccoons, tortoises and other furry—and spikey—creatures try to come to terms with the humans who are destroying their suburban habitat in the Third Grade play on October 10 and 11.

This is the first time the play has been performed. Directed and adapted by Elisa Sidoli, the story offers important moral lessons about the need to live in harmony with the natural world while tickling our funny bones with the humorous antics of both animals and humans.
