School is back in session and the students of the Watertower Elementary School are having trouble concentrating. They are bored and listless until suddenly in walks a new student, Gooney Bird Greene, wearing pajamas and cowboy boots. The class is never the same again.

Gooney Bird dresses in outrageous outfits, speaks with confidence and casts herself as the hero in the most outlandish stories about her life including how she arrived from China on a flying carpet. But are these stories true? Of course they are, for Gooney Bird only tells “absolutely true stories!” Gooney Bird’s flair for storytelling awakens the students’ imaginations and inspires them to tell their own true life tales.
* These shows are primarily for camp groups, however the remaining seats are now available for sale to the general public.
