The Twins and the Monster

Mollel created this story, of how twin brother and sister outwit a gruesome monster, for a production for children by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO), with music composed by John Estacio. Since its debut, the story has been performed annually to elementary schools and families by ESO and by symphonies in cities across Canada, including Victoria, Hamilton, Calgary, Toronto, and in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the U.S. The story was adapted for the stage by Dandi Productions.
