Families will have “udderly” fabulous fun when they attend a new musical based on the Caldecott Award-winning book by Doreen Cronin with pictures by Betsy Lewin, “Click, Clack, Moo,” at Lincoln-Way North High School’s Performing Arts Center on Feb. 23 at 11 a.m.
The talented and professional adult actors of TheatreworksUSA bring to life this hilarious musical about Farmer Brown and his typing cows that protest their working conditions.
“Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!” Farmer Brown cries.
When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declares the farm a “tech-free zone.” He confiscates her laptop in the cold barn along with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets.
“No way,” replies Farmer Brown. “No blankets!”
So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs!
Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back?
Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" new musical about negotiation and compromise!
