The B Street Theatre School Tour production of Fantasy Festival XXVI hits the road this spring. This is the 26th year that elementary and middle schools students throughout northern California have submitted original plays to B Street’s annual playwriting contest for young people. Mutts in a Rutt by Kimberly Bean of Taylor Street Elementary School is one of only 5 plays selected from over 150 entries to be acted out by the professional actors of B Street Theatre.
Kimberly Bean is a 6th grade student enrolled in the Gifted and Talented Program at Taylor Street Elementary School and wrote the play as part of a class project. Her inspiration for the play was inspired by a pet poodle named “Mimi” who is a rescue pet.
Mutts in a Rutt will be performed in over 108 schools in northern California beginning on March 19 and culminating on June 8, 2012 with a performance at Taylor Street Elementary School.
