Book by Joseph Robinette. Music and lyrics by Evelyn Swenson
Directed by Lisa Konoplisky & Kjersti Johanson
Based on the life and stories of Beatrix Potter. This delightful musical adds a new dimension to the tales of Beatrix Potter. Everyone knows about "Peter Rabbit", but not everyone knows how Beatrix came to write his story. Beatrix's best friend, Annie Moore looks back at the life and stories of one of the most famous children's authors of all times. The musical tells the story of Beatrix and her determination to be a writer. In addition to the 'people' story, the musical includes five of her favorite tales. We meet Peter Rabbit, Jeremy Fisher, Tom Thumb & Hunca Munca (Two bad mice), Mother Rabbit, Rebeccah Puddle Duck, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, The Tailor of Gloucester and Jemima Puddle Duck to name a few!
