"There's another place, farther than it seems
Just beyond our reach, just beyond our dreams
But if we leave today and never look behind
We'll get a little closer, one step at a time."
This fantasy follows four young travelers on a whimsical journey of discovery as they try to reach the unreachable. Along the way they meet five "tribes", each with a distinct approach to problem solving…the "What-ifs", the "Wannas", the "Wrongorites", the "Jokers" and the "Unos". Ultimately, the travelers learn to "Think for Yourself". The play not only invokes the message of "the joy is in the journey", but exposes how people use different thought processes in dealing with day to day problems. The play includes eight original compositions and has ben performed by a large ensemble of 2nd and 3rd grade students. The script is written for a cast of 26, but it is easily adaptable to a cast size of 20 to 50 children. Runs about 40 minutes.
