About the production:
CCT is among the first group of theatres in the country to perform Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical , which was just released for production this year. The production will be directed by Chad Henderson, director of last season's wildly successful Pinkalicious The Musical.
It sounds so simple, just a quick trip to the laundromat in Brooklyn with Daddy, Trixie and her beloved Knuffle Bunny, but before you know it, things go horribly, hilariously wrong. Chock full of adventure, song and gigantic dancing laundry, KNUFFLE BUNNY: A CAUTIONARY MUSICAL tells a tale of firsts: a stuffed animal’s first trip in the laundry, a little girl’s first words and a Daddy’s first time dealing with his child going “boneless.” Based on his beloved Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, six-time Emmy Award winner Mo Willems joins Grammy Award–winning composer Michael Silversher to lovingly celebrate the heart and heartache that can only come from a family visit to the local laundromat. We mentioned the giant dancing laundry, right?
Come be part of an amazing organization that gives many children from across the state their first magical experience with the performing arts!
