October 10 - November 1

at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center Directions

Spookley the Square Pumpkin is teased by the other pumpkins because of his odd shape. His new friends – three hilarious spiders named Edgar, Allan and Poe – try to convince Spookley that square or not, he has a right to be the Pick of the Patch on Halloween. Spookley isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch, sending the round pumpkins rolling towards the raging river. Just in time for Halloween, Spookley - the Official Spokes-Pumpkin for National Bullying Prevention Month as recogznied by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center  – teaches us there are times it is better to be square.
