Opening the 2018-2019 season is Leo Lionni’s Frederick, CCT's world premiere musical based on beloved children’s author Leo Lionni’s Caldecott Award-winning book about Frederick the mouse.
This new staging is a raucous and playful musical adaptation, featuring six actor-musicians playing spirited folk and blues music.
While other mice are gathering food for the winter, Frederick daydreams the summer away. When dreary weather comes, it is Frederick who has stored up something special for the long cold winter. The classic, much-loved early reading book celebrates the idea that there is a place for all of us in this world.
Recommended for All Ages.
