The Little Red Wagon is the longest running nonprofit, children’s theatre tour in the US. Since 1971, the Wagon has performed throughout New England at more than 70 locations every summer. The Little Red Wagon, a grass-roots model program for the State of New Hampshire, was instrumental to the introduction of Theatre Education into the public school system as a supportive tool for reading and learning.

The Friends of the Library Book Sale will also be going on next door from 10:00-6:00, and from 10:00-2:00 on Wednesday.
