This Two Beans Productions presentation is produced in conjunction with Theatreworks USA, America's largest and most prolific professional not-for-profit theatre for young and family audiences. Every year, the company tours approximately 16 shows from its ever-growing repertoire of 116 plays and musicals.

The Walnut Street Theatre for Kids' Series is celebrated for its commitment to encouraging parents (and grandparents) to read to their kids. Kids enjoy the storybooks, and then discover a whole new level of imagination when they see the shows live, in musical adaptations written especially for grades K-6th and their grown-up friends. The Walnut takes pride in bringing families together through reading and the arts.
