The show is appropriate for children in Grades K-3.

A Kennedy Center Celebration Imagination On Tour production, the play tells the story of Lilly, a little mouse full of ambition and youthful enthusiasm who loves school, especially her new teacher, Mr. Slinger. When she receives an exciting new purple plastic purse, Lilly can't wait to show it to her class but Mr. Slinger has other ideas. Through her various adventures, Lilly learns valuable lessons about friendship, family and forgiveness.
