Based on the beloved Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical is filled with adventure, song and dancing laundry and an instant children’s classic! Six-time Emmy Award winner Mo Willems teams up with Grammy Award-winning composer Michael Silversher to create this heart-warming and hilarious musical.
The story: Girl loves stuffed animal. Girl loses beloved animal. Girl fights to get animal back. Trixie, her father, and her favorite stuffed bunny set off on a trip to the laundromat. The trip brings wonder, excitement and joy to the lively toddler, until she realizes she has left her Knuffle Bunny back at the laundromat. Trixie does everything in her power to make her father understand the emergency, but her father fails to see the issue at hand.
This brilliant true-to-life tale is the epitome of children’s theatre, the story itself already proclaimed a “kid favorite.” The perfect show for a family-friendly outing, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical offers a great opportunity to showcase wacky characters and outrageous technical designs.
