Contents Notes
""A very creative, funny and engaging play, with catch, upbeat songs. Includes players, Willa the student, Sherman and Shirley the pink Shrimp, Johnny Rockfish with sunglasses, Wild Rice, Blue Heron and many other treasures in the wetland. Begins with Willa announcing her decision to got to the wetland because her teacher had mentioned to her that day "there was treasure in the wetland" and she's going to look for it until she finds it, but soon discovers: ""looking for a treasure in a swamp or marsh is a hard job. I see nothing that looks the least bit priceless."" Discovering that treasures she finds were not what she expected, her search leads her to a Bald Eagle, the Muskrat lodge, the fiddling Fiddler Crabs and many more. Willa continues: "I came here looking for gold and silver but I think I've learned what the real treasure is. Everyone I met was a jewel.""--
