ABOUT: Wanda, a spunky 5 year old with a vivid imagination, is convinced there’s a monster in her closet. With Granny’s encouragement, Wanda befriends “Monster,” thus turning a potentially fearful situation into a lesson in acceptance and friendship. The 50-minute is filled with catchy new songs from children’s music star Laurie Berkner and featuring “Monster Boogie,” one of her all time hits, Wanda’s Monster will delight 4-8 year olds and their parents too!
WANDA’S MONSTER THE MUSICAL marks the first collaboration between Making Books Sing and Laurie Berkner, the popular children’s singer/songwriter. NOTE: Laurie Berkner will NOT be performing in Wanda’s Monster, but we hope you enjoy her new songs!
