Based on the beloved Caldecott Honor-winning picture book by Mo Willems, this musical features script and lyrics by six time Emmy Winner Mo Willems and music by Grammy Award-winning composer Michael Silversher. KNUFFLE BUNNY: A CAUTIONARY MUSICAL is under the direction of Stephen L. Fredericks, The Growing Stage’s Executive Director with Musical Direction by Laura Petrie, Choreography by Jillian Petrie and Black Light Bunraku-style Puppetry created by the Growing Stage’s Artist-in-Residence, Perry Arthur Kroeger.
KNUFFLE BUNNY: A CAUTIONARY MUSICAL follows Trixie, her father, and her favorite stuffed bunny 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. Throw in adventure, song and dancing laundry into the mix and you have the perfect show for a family friendly outing.
