At MCCC's Kelsey Theatre April 10

3/11/10


West Windsor, NJ - Separation anxiety has never been more adorable. ArtsPower National Touring Theatre presents a musical adaptation of the popular children's book, "Are You My Mother?" at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre Saturday, April 10 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Based on P.D. Eastman's classic picture book for young readers, the story follows Baby Bird as she cracks out of her shell and finds herself alone. Setting off in search of her mother, she encounters an array of colorful characters including Cat, Dog, and Hen, who help and advise her. Baby Bird's eventual joyful reunion with her mother is a satisfying ending to her brave journey. Children and adults alike will embrace the show's lessons of courage, friendship and family.
