Description: Catch it again or for the first time! Spookley the Square Pumpkin sprouts back into Stages’ Hopkins Jaycees Studio for an encore performance this autumn! When Spookley arrives in the pumpkin patch, he is teased by all the other pumpkins because of his odd shape. Even after his new friends—the boisterous spiders Edgar, Allen and Poe—try to convince him to run for the Pick of the Patch contest, Spookley still isn’t sure he has what it takes. However, a threatening storm may just give Spookley the inspiration to discover his own worth. This imaginative puppetry extravaganza filled with memorable music will surely encourage you to “dare to be square!”

Stage play by Joe Troiano
Based on the film “Spookley the Square Pumpkin” by Joe Troiano and Tom Hughes and the book The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, by Joe Troiano.
Lyrics by Joe Troiano.
Music composed and arranged by Jeffrey Zahn
