Children learn to ‘stand tall’

We were honoured to have Dollywood’s Little Engine Playhouse come to Brantford and Brant County all the way from Tennessee this week!  They performed a short children’s theatrical production based on one of the books in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library called “Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon”.

Children from the community came as well as kindergarten classes from local schools.  The children were captivated and engaged and loved every minute of it!

We welcomed special guests as well including Mayor David Bailey, Mayor Kevin Davis, Ward 2 Councillor Steve Howes from Brant County and both CEO’s from the County and City libraries


This book is about anti bullying, and being proud of who you are and what makes you an individual. After the performance, the children had the opportunity to make crafts highlighting what makes THEM special


We would like to thank everyone who attended and helped with this event.  Thank you to the County of Brant Public Library and the Brantford Public Library for hosting the performances.

We are so lucky that Dollywood’s Little Engine Playhouse chose to come and perform in our community!  Thank you to Sarah, Josh an John for all of your hard work, passion and energy that you put into every performance!

Always remember…..”smile big and the world will smile right alongside you”
