In-Person Productions – Fantastagirl

2021–2022 Season

Fantastagirl and the math monster

June 17, 2022–August 21, 2022

Book & Lyrics by Tori Boutin
Music & Lyrics by Madeline Belknap
Directed by Jenny McConnell Frederick

Fantastagirl, a second-grade superhero who uses words to save the day, comes face to face with her worst nightmare: the Math Monster! When confronted with problems too big for words alone to solve, Fantastagirl must accept help from her friendly, furry, fraction-loving foe. While Fantastagirl and Math Monster use words and numbers to help her friends and scientist moms, something far more sinister than Math brews on the horizon.

Sunday 21st all shows cancelled.
