Busytown: The Musical

Family Series

September 14, 2019 - October 13, 2019

Based on the book by Richard Scarry
Adapted for the stage by Kevin Kling
Music by Michael Koerner

Regional Premiere!

Busytown is always buzzing with activity, but what do people do all day? That’s where Huckle Cat comes in – he’ll take us on a tour of his great neighborhood, and there is so much to see and do, and so many wonderful friends to visit. Huckle shows us how Farmer Pig and Grocer Cat work together to bring food to the town. Construction Worker and his crew build new houses, and Firechief and the gang keep them safe. Isn’t it wonderful how everyone works together to keep Busytown busy?

Recommended for ages 3+

 “Through vibrant singing and dancing, and amazing puppetry, Scarry’s imaginative world is brought to life and allows us to think about even the smallest of daily exchanges as interesting adventures. It promotes a very simple message: Everyone in Busytown relies on one another, and every job has an important role.” –Queen Anne News
