Annie, Bobby, Virgil, Clifford and Rosemary all need to get across the river, but Captain Ha Ha, the ferryboat captain, is sound asleep in her cave beneath the river bank

They try one whimsical scheme after another without any success

And just when all hope seems to float downstream, they finally succeed with a little help from a mystical source

It seems Mary Ryan, Bobby's great-great grandmother, has been visiting him in his dreams every time he sleeps under Anne's family history quilt

So it is with her advice and support that this band of merrymakers persevere

The Captain awakens, and they all triumphantly float away ...

This unusual little play dovetails importance of family, problem solving, and having fun - a lovely perspective on life

Full of slapstick comedy, big laughter, and poetic moments
