Maisie and Grover Go to the Theatre

Synopsis:
Maisie & Grover have come to the theatre using anniversary-present tickets from their children. She loves the idea; he hates it. As the colorful couple enters from the rear of the theatre, they bicker and jostle, break up and make up. This quick, fun, easy show is designed to stand alone or be combined in a program with other plays. So nice!
