“She’s my little hand friend; she’s so cute!” says Eloise Griffin, a student at Walltown Children’s Theatre on Berkeley Street.
The face on the 9-year-old’s palm is typical for the spunky, pink-haired fourth grader, who likes to think of herself “as almost a teen.”
“When I met Eloise, she said I’m going to be an actor someday,” says Meg Feigal (left), innovative operations director at the children’s theater.
Eloise says that’s better than being, like, a Disney princess, “which I don’t want to be because it can be really boring. You sit around all day ... but you do get a horse.”
Having her hand friend inside her palm has an advantage, she says, rotating her hand.
“Every time I wave like this, she’ll be waving too!”
