"If You Give a Pig a Pancake" Brings Storybooks to Life at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Feb. 14

1/20/09


It's time to tickle your funny bone and let your imagination soar at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Theatreworks/USA presents "If You Give a Pig a Pancake and Other Story Books," a musical collage based on popular children's literature, on Saturday, February 14 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

A multi-talented cast presents seven stories that will delight young audiences with a blend of wisdom, humor and joy. The show's title story, "If You Give a Pig a Pancake," is a hilarious lesson in cause-and-effect. "Diary of a Worm" enables youngsters to view the world from a new vantage point. "Horace and Morris But Mostly Dolores" describes a test of true friendship. "How I Became a Pirate" affirms both the excitement of adventure and the satisfactions of home. Other playful tales include "Fluffy the Classroom Guinea Pig," "Lily's Big Day," and "The Paper Bag Princess." The 60-minute musical is recommended for ages 4 and up.

Based in New York City, Theatreworks/USA is America's largest and most prolific professional not-for-profit company for young and family audiences, touring approximately 16 shows annually from a growing repertoire of 117 plays and musicals.
