Purple Crayon Players presents…

The Transition of Doodle Pequeño by Gabriel Jason Dean

Produced by: Khari Shelton
Directed by: Lindsay Amer
*Recommended for 3rd grade and up

Doodle Pequeño and his trilingual goat, Valencia (she speaks English, Spanish, and goat) just moved to Southern California. The apartment they share with mama is packed with unopened boxes. With Halloween comes trick-or-treaters and a boy who wears dresses, Reno, like the city in Nevada. Doodle and Reno evade capture from the evil pumpkin-wielding troll, Baumgartner, and out run their nemesis, marjoram, and her little brother, toph all while the Santa Anna winds rap at the door. It is a story of two boys who become friends in spite of their differences while examining the consequences of misused language, providing insight into the lives of Mexican-immigrant children and interrogating the issues of gender-identity and homophobic bullying.
