Funny family musical/play Amber Brown Is Not A Crayon coming to Thrasher
What do you do when your best friend moves? Amber Brown learns some valuable lessons about the virtues of patience and the meaning of friendship in this funny and forthright play/musical suitable for the whole family. The afternoon matinee will be presented at the historic Thrasher Opera House on Saturday April 16 at 3 p.m.
Amber Brown and Justin Daniels are best friends. They work together in Mrs. Cohenís class at school, play together after school, save their chewed gum in one big ball, and laugh at the same jokes. They are a team of two, even though their classmate, Hannah Burton, thinks they are immature. They are a team of two, even though Justin is moving to Alabama.
Justinís mom, Mrs. Daniels, often watches Amber when her mom, Mrs. Brown, works late. When Mrs. Bradley comes to see about buying the Danielsí house, Amber and Justin work hard to make her hate it, but their plan fails. The house is sold and the two friends must deal with lots of changes they do not want to face. For the first time in their friendship, Amber and Justin are fighting and might not ever speak to one another again.
