Seattle Children’s Theatre starts its 2006-2007 season with Harriet’s Halloween Candy. Harriet loves Halloween. She loves dressing up; she loves hanging out with her friends; and she loves getting all that delicious, gooey, chewy, chocolaty sweet candy. What she does not love is having to share with her baby brother, Walter, even when her parents make her. Once back from her trick-or-treating, the very important sorting process begins. In theory, this is when Harriet will decide which of her treasures she will bestow on her brother. Licorice whips? Nougat bars? Marshmallow puffs? Tangy tarts? Chocolate drops? No!! They’re all too good to share. And they’re all hers. To keep her stash safe, Harriet tries hiding it, but what will she do when she has to go to school? Why, take it with her, of course. When her friends find out she’s been hoarding all the goodies for herself, they turn their backs on her selfish ways. Her obsession has landed her in a sticky mess. But with the help of her mother, Harriet proves that she knows nothing is sweeter than a true friend.
