Workshop description

The town of Gerrilola is a peaceful enclave in the Valley of Maladoo.

The village is renowned throughout the country for its wide variety of produce, ranging from firemelons to lobsterpears.

Two brave adventurers (of your choosing) arrive on the town’s Independence day to join in the local festivities, which include a fishing competition, a scavenger hunt, and an epic fireworks show.

However, our adventurers will find much more than they bargained for as they explore the town and discover its many characters and secrets.

The characters you may choose from are as follows:

1. A Sorcerer and a Centaur

2. A Superhero and a Goblin

3. A Scientist and a Musician

The Princess And The Pitstop

Once upon a time there was a Princess . . . . . . who made a pit stop. While the Birds and Beasts changed her tires, her Fairy Godmother told her she was in last place! With just one lap left! She might as well give up! Give up? Not THIS princess! Instead, she hit the gas! Join Her Royal Highness in the driver’s seat for a mad dash to the finish in this exciting ode to auto racing. With appearances by fairy tale favorites including the Tortoise and the Hare, the Frog Prince, and ALL of the Wicked Witches, this rollicking mash-up of race cars and royalty is a true celebration of both girl power and horsepower.
