A short film about mistakes 

Dr. Professor is on a quest to answer to the question, “Is it OK to make mistakes?” When taking their research to the young experts of the classroom, more than a few foibles cause the doctor to continuously fail. With help from their assistant, together they uncover how mistakes can help us learn and make new discoveries. Award-winning, inter-artist Candice Roberts performs this fun and clever story about growth mindset and the creative process through a seamless weaving of shadow puppetry, original music, tap dance and physical comedy in this fun and interactive theatrical experience.

Rave Reviews

This is an absolutely adorable short film about learning and not giving up. The story is funny, creative and silly.

I could have watched it for hours. Even as an adult, I was belly laughing and tearing up! If you have an opportunity to bring her to your school, grab it quickly and enjoy!
