Playing Wicked

Dante loves playing make believe. When he’s with his friends, he’s the wizened wizard or regal ruler. But when he’s by himself, Dante would rather be the wicked queen. Then, one day, his dress and makeup are just so perfect that he braves the outdoors, delighting in his playful evilness. Will Dante find someone to play the hero to his villain?
