The shows include:
"If You Give a Mouse a Cookie": Jan. 23
When a boy shares his snack with a hungry, demanding mouse, he learns a hilarious lesson about cause-and-effect. Written by Laura Joffe Numeroff.
"Ramona Quimby": Feb. 13
Ramona, the exasperating but lovable third-grader, has delighted young readers for more than fifty years through the books of Newbery Medal-winning writer Beverly Cleary. Now, she comes to life on the stage in "Ramona Quimby."
"Skippyjon Jones": March 13
Skippyjon Jones is a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams. Sometimes he pretends to be a bird, sometimes he pretends to be a llama and sometimes he pretends to be a whale... Anything but a Siamese cat. Based on the book by Judy Schachner, "Skippyjon Jones" is an enchanting musical about unleashing your powerful imagination and following your dreams.
