The Hundred Dresses

Innovocative and Stageworks Theatres are thrilled to be co-producing The Hundred Dresses, based on the Newberry Honor winning book by Eleanor Estes. This fun, engaging family-friendly show addresses themes of bullying and empathy.

The time is September 1938, and tumultuous social and economic forces, at work across the globe and in the United States during the Great Depression, are being felt in a public school classroom in a rural Connecticut town. Ten-year-old Wanda Petronski is trying to fit in among the other students in Miss Mason’s class, but that isn’t easy. For starters, she’s shy, and a slow reader. Her family’s poor, and they live in a shack on the outskirts of town. But the added stigma Wanda faces as a member of a Polish immigrant family comes to a head when she claims she has one-hundred beautiful dresses—though she’s only ever been seen in one.

In this unique stage adaptation, Wanda’s story unfolds through the eyes of another student: Maddie, who’s the best friend of the headstrong Peggy, the most popular girl in school. When Peggy and other students start to make fun of Wanda, Maddie is confronted with an uncomfortable choice—one that will affect her life and the lives of those around her.
