Welcome to a whole NEW adaptation of Holiday Heroes.  It’s the holiday season and the characters named RED and GREEN work in a factory sharply divided between a red side and a green side. One day, instead of a package, RED and GREEN receive a visitor – PURPLE. PURPLE doesn’t fit into either side, and GREEN can’t seem to get rid of her. Through music, mime and mischief, PURPLE helps RED and GREEN learn the value of giving, empathy, and to see the world from the other point of view.
Curriculum Connections:  Holidays, Social Emotional Learning (Acceptance, conflict resolution, giving)
