"She's my little hand friend; she's so cute!" says Eloise Griffin, 9, a student at Walltown Children's Theatre on Berkeley Street in Durham. "When I met Eloise, she said I'm going to be an actor someday," says Meg Feigal (left), innovative operations director. Eloise says that's better than being, like, a Disney a 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. "Every time I wave like this, she'll be waving too!"
