TUESDAY, June 18th at 7PM: THE PENDERWICKS IN SPRING Begins
Caledonia brings us to some old friends with a new adventure... Jeanne Birdsall's Penderwick Family. Springtime is finally arriving on Gardam Street, and with it comes all the
joyful chaos of the Penderwicks. The brood has grown to six with the addition
the new youngest sibling, and there are surprises in store for all.
Some surprises are just wonderful, like Nick Geiger coming
home from war. And some are ridiculous, like Batty’s new dog-walking business,
which has resulted in her spending an inordinate amount of time with Duchess, a
very fat dachshund, and Cilantro, a wrinkled shar-pei with a bark like a
lovelorn tuba. Batty is saving up her dog-walking money for an extra-special
surprise for her family, which she plans to present on her upcoming birthday.
The timing is perfect: Rosalind will be home from college, Skye and Jane will
put their bothersome teenage worries aside to celebrate, and Jeffrey, honorary
Penderwick and Batty’s musical mentor, will be visiting from Boston. But when an unwelcome surprise
arrives, the best-laid plans fall apart.
Filled with all the heart, hilarity, and charm that have
come to define this beloved clan, The Penderwicks in Spring is about fun and
family and friends (and dogs), and what happens when you bring what’s hidden
into the bright light of the spring sun.
