While other mice are gathering food for the winter, Frederick daydreams the summer away. When dreary weather comes, it is Frederick who has stored up something special for the long cold winter. The classic, much-loved early reading book celebrates the idea that there is a place for all of us in this world.
In Chicago Children's Theatre's hands, Frederick is getting a decidedly raucous and playful adaptation via a new musical featuring six actor-musicians playing spirited folk and blues music. The world of Frederick will also feature an inventive, homemade, do-it-yourself, trunk show style of production that will be highly physical and transforms ordinary objects and everyday ideas into the extraordinary.
