10-year-old twins, Juniper and Zephyr Hillhouse live on Season Isle with their guardian, the anthropomorphic House on the Hill. The island is divided into four seasons; the twins and House, as she’s lovingly called, live in the center. When problems arise (adventures can’t start without them after all) island residents seek the center. There’s no shame in asking for help.
Reminiscent of the captivating serial radio shows of yore, yet clearly designed for 21st century listeners, Season Isle is populated with the wit and utter charm of talking calculators, agoraphobic seasons, and protective penguin dads to name a few. The spunky twins use their smarts, diplomatic skills, and problem-solving prowess to fix, cure, and prevail.
Kudos to writers Liz Marsham and Landry Walker for the inventive plots and twists, Nathaniel Reichman for the opulent sound design, and a serious fist bump for Paula Wilson’s casting and direction. Stone Shaper’s Blue Fever is contagious.
