"Do you think the only lessons learned in life are in books?"

Wanda Petronski, the new girl in Room 13, speaks with an accent, has a funny last name, lives in the wrong part of town, and wears the same faded blue dress to school every day. Who would believe she has a hundred bright, shiny new ones at home. As Wanda's story unfolds, her classmates learn the secret of the hundred dresses and with it, a lesson in tolerance, in taking responsibility, and in living with the consequences of one’s actions.

Based on the Newberry Honor-winning novel, The Hundred Dresses takes audiences of all ages on a heartwarming journey about finding the courage to stand up for others, even if you are standing alone.
