West Windsor, N.J. - Life's quirky situations often provide valuable teaching moments.

Performed by a five-member cast portraying dozens of characters, the stories include: "Duck for President" by Doreen Cronin and Betsey Lewin; "Fancy Nancy" by Jane O'Connor; "BabyMouse, The Musical" by Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm; I Have to Go!" by Robert Munsch; "Leonardo, The Terrible Monster" by Mo Willems and "Pirates Don't Change Diapers" by Melinda Long.
