Books" Come to Life at Kelsey Theatre Oct. 9
Windsor, N.J. - Life's quirky situations often provide valuable
teaching moments. TheatreWorks/USA brings some of these lessons
to the stage in its hilarious hour-long musical revue for
children, "Duck For President, Fancy Nancy and Other
Story Books," coming to Mercer County Community College's
Kelsey Theatre as part of the Kelsey Kids Series on Saturday,
Oct. 9 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located
on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Exploring such themes as friendship, leadership, the discovery
of what matters most, and the trials of just growing up, there
is merriment and poignancy aplenty in six popular story book
adaptations. 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
