Gather you family and friends for an afternoon of imagination and excitement while learning about the power of words! FRINDLE is based on the popular children’s book of the same name, by Andrew Clements. Third-grader Nicholas Allen is known for his quick wit and creativity, especially when it comes to fooling teachers! But when Nick learns an interesting bit of information about words and where they come from, it inspires his greatest plan yet: to invent a new word! From now on, a pen is no longer a pen – it’s a “frindle.” To his surprise, it doesn’t take long for “frindle” to take off amongst his classmates and spreads throughout the school and even his town. This quirky, imaginative take about creative thought and the power of words will have you and your family inventing your own words on the way out the theatre!
