About the Play

Young audiences. 10-15 minutes. 1-5 females, 1-5 males (6 performers total). Suitable for elementary school and older.

Adapted for the stage from the book by Don Freeman.

Dandelion is available in print (feel free to place your order on this page) as part of Classics for Kids, a quartet of short plays based on the books of acclaimed children's writer Don Freeman.


When Dandelion the lion is invited to a party at Jennifer Giraffe's house, he does everything to change his appearance, from buying a new sweater, hat and cane, to getting his hair curled. But much to his dismay, his friends do not recognize the new dapper, dandy Dandelion. After they shut the door on him, he is caught in a fierce rainstorm, which forces him to shed his new outfit. The next time the door opens; he looks like just like the lion they were waiting for all along. A wonderful play about the importance of being yourself!
