Children's Theater: Click, Clack, Moo!

January 11-18, 2015

The cows in this tale are an unusual bunch—they can type and they’re on strike! Farmer Brown can’t believe his ears when he first hears “click, clack, moo” coming from the barn. The cows are typing a letter asking for improved working conditions and will do anything to get it—even if it means refusing to be milked. This hilariously mooooving musical comedy about the power of compromise is based on Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin’s Caldecott Honor Book, a New York Times best-seller. (Ages 4-10) Theatreworks USA
