Great Show for Both Adults and Kids

—TheatreMania
If you’re looking for a sweet and entertaining show to take a small child, look no further. I took my 4-year-old nephew, and Holy Cow, he sat at the edge of his chair, rapt with the proceedings. As a matter of fact I noticed about a half dozen other children at Sundays 7:30 pm show, a time you wouyld imagine some kids might start getting cranky with fatigue, but no, they were each and every one of them engaged with this lovely show. What a treat for a child. The singing was wonderful; and the music very catchy. I really really appreciate that this musical is out there, providing a terrific opportunity for older folks and children to experience and enjoy theatre together. THANK YOU!

 

Awesome show for kids and adults!

I was blown away by the talent of the cast as well as the catchy songs and cleverly written script. Everyone says children are the toughest audience because they are the most honest. The children in this audience sat there enthralled during the entire performance. Kudos to Toni Stanton City Mouse, Megan Thomas Country Mouse, Marcus Conerly, and the rest of the talented, versatile cast. Danielle Rhodes Musical Director led the catchy music created by Jack Dyville and John Stutte.
