About The Plays/Musicals

If You Give A Moose A MuffinIf You Give A Moose A Muffin
Book by:   Laura Joffe Numeroff

In this hilarious sequel to If You Give A Mouse A Cookie and If You Give A Pig A Pancake, a young boy entertains a gregarious moose by giving him a muffin. If a big hungry moose wants a muffin, he'll surely want some jam to go with it. So begins the comic complications of an adventure that will delight young audience members just as much as the first two sequels!

If You Give A Mouse a CookieIf You Give A Mouse a Cookie
Book by:   Laura Joffe Numeroff

Based on the beloved book by Laura Numeroff Joffee, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is adapted for the stage by Jody Davidson. It is an adventurous, fun-filled performance appropriate for ages pre-k through 5th grade.

When a rather demanding mouse in coveralls wearing a backpack shows up in a curious boy’s kitchen one day, the boy soon finds himself figure skating on scrub brushes, wrestling a boa constrictor, and climbing mountains, as an innocent milk and cookie snack time goes from mishap to calamity to catastrophe faster than the twitch of a whisker.

If You Give A Pig a Pancake If You Give A Pig a Pancake
Book by:   Laura Joffe Numeroff

From the Laura Numeroff Joffee repertoire, If You Give A Pig a Pancake follows the enterprising journey of a young girl who accommodates the demands of a quirky piglet after eating pancakes. Their adventure is an escapade which becomes embroiled in taking a bubble bath, a little tap dance, taking a photo, mailing a letter, building a tree house, and of course, going back for more pancakes.
