A World Premiere! Buon Appetito!
When 2 elderly Italian sisters decide to fulfil their lifelong dream of completing their education after leaving school as children to help run the family bakery, an Elementary school and a young newcomer girl have their lives upended as quickly as a pineapple upside down cake!
The 2 nonnas are so curious, but also full of firm rules and ideas. So, like their young classmate, they need to figure out how to take turns, work as a team and learn how to fit into a new environment! When the legendary school Bake Sale looms, the 3 must learn to work together for everyone to succeed!
Is there a Seniors’ Centre near your school? Do you have any events that students invite their grandparents to? We’d love to share this show with a mixed audience of Elementary students and Seniors!
