In addition to the one hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir and work together to make a quilt that will be donated to VA hospitals across the country. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production.
The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.
