Two bedtime stories come to life on stage with these adaptations of Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd’s beloved classics, Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. The acclaimed Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia (last with us two seasons ago for The Very Hungry Caterpillar) brings its whimsical puppetry, dreamlike imagery, and original music to two best-loved childhood stories, infusing young audiences with a wonderful sense of security and peace, and providing an effortless introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading.
Most appropriate for children in grades PreK-2.

Skippyjon Jones is a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams! When his mama sends him to his room to think about behaving like the cat he really is, his wild imagination takes over as he catches his reflection in a mirror. “Holy guacamole,” Skippyjon exclaims. “My ears are too big for my head, my head is too big for my body. I am not a Siamese cat – I am a CHIHUAHUA!” He dons a mask, a cape, and an accent, and transforms into Skippito Friskito, the greatest canine sword fighter in old Mexico! Based on the book by Judy Schachner, Skippyjon Jones is an enchanting musical about unleashing your powerful imagination and following your dreams.
Most appropriate for children in grades K-3.
