I Need My Teeth is an interactive live-action assembly based on the book I Need My Teeth by Holli Seabury. Copies of the book are available at Allen Co. Public Library branches.

The goal will be to perform two shows per day for 10 weekdays. Assemblies are currently being scheduled with schools. Potentially, the dates will be Monday through Friday, May 4-May 22. The latest possible date an assembly could be scheduled would be June 5. There will also be a mandatory performance for the funding organization on June 10 at 4 pm in Lansing, MI. Transportation will be provided for the Lansing performance.


Rehearsals will be three times a week from April 13 - May 1. Rehearsals can be scheduled around the cast’s availability. Rehearsals will be held at McMillen Center for Health Education – 600 Jim Kelley Blvd. Fort Wayne, IN 46816
