"Max and Ruby" Takes Center
Stage at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Feb. 23

1/22/08


The adventures of Max, a rambunctious toddler bunny, and his precocious big sister, Ruby, come to life in Theatreworks/USA's lovable new musical, "Max and Ruby," coming to Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre Saturday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. and at 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

When Ruby seeks Max's assistance to plan a play for Grandma, she does not anticipate the comedic hurdles that seem to follow Max wherever he goes. Ruby finally calls on her Bunny Scout friends to help them try to finish the play on time. "Max and Ruby" features music and lyrics by Carol Hall and is based on the popular stories by noted children's author Rosemary Wells and the animated television series on Nickelodeon. With songs including "Things in Twosies," "Cowboy!," "Blue Tarantula" and "Bunny Scout Anthem," the show is a sure delight for children ages three and up.

Theatreworks/USA, based in New York City, is America's largest and most prolific professional not-for-profit theatre for young and family audiences, touring approximately 16 shows annually from an ever-growing repertoire of 117 plays and musicals. Every year, over four million people in 49 states and Canada, many without access to the performing arts, enjoy Theatreworks productions in venues as varied as local elementary school gymnasiums, regional fine arts centers, and major Broadway-sized theaters.
