Performed by Adlib Musical Children’s Productions

Playwright: Lynn Joffe, Adam Howard // Director: Lynn Joffe

Children select from a variety of original and classical nursery rhymes, stories and myths, rendered on screen, in song and visuals.  A nutshell summary of the elements of theatre, each story contains a narrative, a song, an activity, bringing out each child’s innate creativity in a musical way.  Amplifications of the story include making recycled musical instruments, character masks, shadow puppetry, puzzles and games.
