The Day The Crayons Quit is a play based on the bestselling book by the same name. Written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Jeff Olviers, this is a delightful little book about how all the crayons in the box are protesting about something or the other. They all have a genuine problem and have had enough. So they decide to quit.
Using parts of the book, we’ve used visual and musical elements to bring alive the problems of the crayons on stage. There are fire engines, waterfalls, seas, skies, Santa’s sleigh, a fashion show all of which help to highlight the crayons’ problem. This play is of high energy engagement with the kids as we transport them into the world of the crayons.
We have modified a couple of really popular songs to communicate what’s happening on stage and to get our tiny people to sing along with us. At the end of the day all we want the kids to do is explore new things and try to do things differently.
