Interactive Story Theatre with CTC

Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress 

Saturday, October 14, 2023
Progress Center Youth Stage, 10:30 am – 11:00 am

The Children’s Theatre Company world premiere of Morris Micklewhite and the Tangerine Dress is based on the critically acclaimed book by Christine Baldacchino and Isabelle Malenfant. This interactive story theatre session, led by a professional teaching artist from the Children’s Theatre Company, will spark imagination, promote creativity, and bring the book to life! For children ages 4-10, and their grown-ups.


Morris likes lots of things: doing puzzles, painting pictures, pretending to be an astronaut, and wearing a tangerine dress from his school’s dress-up box because it “reminds him of tigers, the sun, and his mother’s hair.” Some of his classmates think boys can’t wear dresses because … well, because they’re boys. With his vivid imagination and space-animal friends, Morris travels the galaxy in search of an answer to the all-important question: “Do astronauts wear dresses?”
