About This Show

Sid Fleischman’s Newbery Award-winning book The Whipping Boy translates perfectly to the stage with this hilarious musical adaptation. The play traces the unlikely friendship between horrible Horace, aka “Prince Brat,” and Jemmy, the street urchin who?s been brought to court and put in fancy clothes to take the Prince?s punishments for him. Though Jemmy has plans for a solo escape, he’s enlisted by the Prince as a companion runaway. In the spirit of Twain?s The Prince and the Pauper, this winning adventure is surefire fun.
Recommended for everyone ages 6 and older.
