Based on the book by Eileen Spinelli.
Mr. Hatch lives in a colorless, ordered life. He goes to work at the shoelace factory, eats his lunch alone, reads the paper and then goes to bed... early. Until, one Valentine’s Day, he received the biggest surprise of his life, a candy-filled heart with a note that whispers “somebody loves you.” Mr. Hatch’s world is turned upside down and he begins to make friends and enjoy all the fun parts of life that he once ignored. Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch is a heartwarming puppet play that examines the effect that kindness can have on a dreary existence.
