Pollyanna Theatre Company presents Playing Possum, May 13 – 21 in Rollins Studio Theatre.

Long ago, possums didn’t look the way they do today. They were silky white and had beautiful tails with long, thick fur. And they loved to play tricks! Particularly on poor Coyote.

In this retelling of Mexican folklore, we follow Possum’s adventures where perhaps he plays one trick too many. Combined with Spanish language elements, this play will have children laughing while they think about what it really means to be clever.
