Kids' Lit March Madness

(Click image to enlarge.)

We had such a blast last year with our Shakespeare-themed "Ides of March Madness" bracket. It started as a little activity to help drum up excitement for Fiasco Theater's Measure for Measure at the New Vic, but it quickly took on a life of its own! Nearly 20,000 of you visited our blog to vote on which of The Bard's plays would be named the best of its kind. The final round matched up Hamlet against Much Ado About Nothing, with the Danish prince coming out as champion!

So, we wanted to try it again this year. With musical fairy tale The Light Princess beginning the month on our stage, followed by a rockin' production of the children's classic Pinocchio, we figured our March Madness theme this year could only be one thing: Kids' Lit! 

Take a look at our match-ups, below. The fate of modern classics like The Very Hungry Caterpillar or beloved fairy tales like Cinderella all depend on your votes! Use the form below to cast your votes on our match-ups and check back next Monday (March 9) to see which stories make it through to the next round. Happy voting!
