About this show

Music by Randy Courts Book & Lyrics by Mark St. Germain Set in a time when the sun turned round the earth and animals could speak, The Book of the Dun Cow is a powerful, uplifting new musical adapted from Walter Wangerin Jr.'s National Book Award winning novel. Chauntecleer, an all too human Rooster, battles the evil forces of Wyrm for nothing less than the fate of the earth. An allegorical tale told by a musical menagerie, this heartfelt, epic adventure will thrill all ages. Prospect's Artistic Director Cara Reichel brings to life this fantastical story with her innovative staging and the help of a talented, ensemble cast. The Book of the Dun Cow contains images of violence which while not graphic in nature might be disturbing to young children.
