ABOUT GILGAMESH: the Hero-y King
King Gilgamesh thinks he’s the gods’ gift to Uruk. And he has a point, since he’s half god and half man. He’s handsome (shiny!), he’s strong (hero-y!), and he likes to tell his people what to do (bossy!). But Gilgamesh is driving the people of Uruk crazy. So the gods send Enkidu, a wild man who lives in the forest, to fight Gilgamesh and show the shiny, hero-y, bossy young king what it really means to be a great leader. And although Gilgamesh and Enkidu start off as enemies, they need to figure out how to work together when a monster comes from the forest to destroy them and everyone else in Uruk.

ABOUT THE PIRATE MERMAID PLAY
Math-wizard Riley and her magic-obsessed brother Charles inherit a mysterious mirror from their grandfather.  Now they must decide: stay home with the same old video games or embark on a quest to the Isle of Possibilities?  Spurred on by pirates, the children board the S.S. Barnacleand have adventures that teach lessons about friendship, self-confidence, and teamwork.  The sea goddess Salacia aides Riley, who confronts the trickster spirit Anansi.  Our heroine then encounters story-telling dolphins, dancing hermit crabs, and the mysterious Cave of Lost Socks.  When the children discover a treasure chest, they wonder what secrets lie within?  Who can tell?  Certainly not the pirates’ parrot Polly: “RRRrrrrr!!!”
