This performance, by Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist Melissa Richardson, is a dramatization of an original story. Pernilla Gorilla loves to invent, but the other animals in the jungle don’t always appreciate her creations. Through Pernilla’s determination and creativity, children will learn about the value of learning from mistakes, being willing to try again, and believing in themselves.
Wolf Trap Field Trip Fridays are performed and recorded by Wolf Trap Teaching Artists to provide children and their parents/caregivers the opportunity to experience stimulating live arts experiences from the comfort of their home. These interactive performances are accompanied by a handout that has been created to serve as an educational tool to enhance the child’s experience.
