The Arkansaw Bear
by Aurand Harris

The Arkansaw Bear

This award-winning classic play tells the story of a little girl named Tish, who has just discovered that her grandfather is dying. She runs away to her special tree, wishes upon a star, and escapes to a fantastical world of music, magic and dance. There she meets the world’s greatest dancing bear, who is also running away from death. In trying to help him, Tish begins to understand the meaning of life and death and learns how to cope with her own sadness.

Targeted to grades 3 - 6, but fun for the whole family.
