I would love to have a copy of your play. We enjoy the story every year and last year we made pumpkin fudge to coorelate with the theme of fall and pumpkins. A play would just add even more fun! vharp@hartford.wsc.k12.ar.us


I would love to have a copy of your "Pumpkin Fiesta" play! Our school district recently changed our Reading Curricula to include your story in our 2nd grade text! If only the story were in the fall stories instead of the spring! Hmmm ... I wonder about freezing one?! Anyway,I have always enjoyed your story tremendously, and it was fun to stumble upon it!

How do you get the pumpkin fiesta musical??

Dear Caryn, I think that your play, "Pumpkin Fiesta" is GREAT! I was in at Main Street Arts as Linda, the Pumpkin Babe. You are also an amazing co-director in the theater. Hope to see you this summer, Krista, Vermont P.S. You also did a great job helping in "Cobler of Kustan". :-)
