The Claw

By Denver Casado, Jessica Penzias, Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm, Christyn Budzyna & Jack Mitchel

Inside an out-of-order claw game are two best friends: a cow plush named Dot and a stuffed dragon named Aiden. While Aiden wishes he could leave the game, DOT loves being stuck inside, where things never change. Suddenly, the ground beneath them starts to shake! All of the toys are tossed around as the claw game springs to life for the first time in ages!

While Aiden is determined to leave the game today, Dot is terrified of facing the unknown. In their quest to stay together Dot and Aiden visit the eccentric Flair Bears and the Mighty Mutant Power Turtles. Terrified Dot consults the Mystical 8 Ball who cannot offer any guarantees. Will Dot overcome her fear of the unknown? Find out when BDACT’s Tell-A-Tale Theatre presents “The Claw.”
