VEGGIE BOOGIE! A madcap play for youth which takes place in a Harlem brownstone on All Hallow's Eve. A quirky and creative family is enchanted by a wacky vegetarian witch doctor who casts magic spells on everyone and everything including the vegetables. VEGGIE BOOGIE! is a coming-of-age story wherein Boo, the birthday boy, comes to terms with the concept of free will, self-awareness and the importance of eating vegetables.

*There will be a 30-minute Q&A after the reading. We invite you to participate in the creative process by sharing your feedback to assist in the First Look development of Ave Maria's play.

$5 Admission - For appetizers, refreshments and some sweet and spicy yummy conversation! So make sure to bring your creative thinking caps into this POTPOURRI! mix!
