Say "yes" to tolerance and "no" to meanness! That's a good rule, but it's not always easy. When Ellie stands up for Lazlo S. Gasky, the new kid at school, everyone turns against her. But Ellie and Lazlo find a way to teach an important lesson (be yourself—it's the best way to be!) in this sweet, goofy and upbeat musical from the book by CBS news anchor Katie Couric.

Theatre for Young Audiences … and Their Families is just that, a multi-generational experience for all ages (except children under the age of 4 and babes in arms). The only requirement is that each audience member occupy a seat and sit quietly through the performance while having a wonderful time!
