Show synopsis:
Maddie is distressed. She knows she didn’t do the right thing, but can she make amends before its too late? Based on the Newbery Award winning book, this timeless tale follows the story of Wanda Petronski, who simply wants to have fun and make friends, just like every other child. But in 1930’s small town America, a Polish immigrant doesn’t easily fit in. At her new school, Wanda quickly becomes the object of her classmate’s ridicule. When the bullying doesn’t stop, the children arrive one day to see that Wanda’s once occupied seat is left empty. That leaves Maddie, a bystander on the playground, questioning if saying nothing to a bully is as bad as being the bully herself. Written nearly 80 years ago, this relevant tale rings true in today’s world. When it matters most, we all think we would do the right thing; but when it comes down to it – do we really have what it takes?
