Get Set for a Children’s “Tail” of Imagination with “Skippyjon Jones” At Kelsey Theatre May 19


West Windsor, N.J. – Young, creative  and imaginative minds will delight in TheatreworksUSA’s brand new children’s musical, “Skippyjon Jones,” coming to Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre on May 19, with shows at 2 and 4 p.m.  Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Based on the book by Judy Schachner, “Skippyjon Jones” is an enchanting musical about a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams.  Sometimes he pretends to be a bird, sometimes he pretends to be a llama, and sometimes he pretends to be a whale. Anything but a Siamese cat! When he finally decides he wants to be a dog, it’s not just any dog.  Skippyjon transforms himself into Skippito Friskito, a chihuahua who is the greatest canine sword fighter in old Mexico – complete with mask, cape, and accent!  But when the local pack of chihuahuas is terrorized by the gigantic bee, will Skippyjon be a “fraidy-cat” or the top dog?
