THE ADVENTURES OF MOE JOE AND SNOWY IN LOCHLOOSA – A CHILDREN’S PLAY

 

In this children’s play, the teacher, Miss Ann, reads to her class out of a book, ” The Adventures of Moe Joe and Snowy in Lochloosa.” As she reads, the imagination of the children transports them into the book to a house on a lake where their teacher, Miss Ann and the principal of the school, Mr Timothy are married. They live with a cat and a dog in the little house. There is also a fierce alligator living in the lake that wants to eat them, but they are protected by ‘Eagle Eyes’ who sees the alligator and keeps them safe from harm.
