Keep Your Eyes Open

**Winner of the 2008 NY International Fringe Festival Most Outstanding Ensemble Award!**

Keep Your Eyes Open, the first play created/performed by children to be selected for FringeNYC 2008 and THE BEST OF FRINGE MOST OUTSTANDING ENSEMBLE AWARD WINNER, takes viewers on an unexpected journey inside the world of the girls of Westbrook Middle School! The tricky and trying realities faced by our daughters, sisters, and friends are humorously examined through the eyes of Winnifred, a precocious 12-year-old (½ Ramona Quimby, ½ Juno MacGuff) armed with a video camera and a laptop. Determined to move the masses, Winnie creates her very own reality web-series called Winnifred’s Words of Wisdom. With help from her classmates, The Westbrook Wildcat Dance Team, the music of Gwen Stefani, Fergie, and Soulja Boy, and inspired by her hope for a better world, Winnifred reveals life beyond Disney Channel and Juicy Couture and captures real stories about real girls!
