School-Day Show: TheatreworksUSA in Skippyjon Jones

Skippyjon Jones is a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams! Sometimes he pretends to be a bird, sometimes he pretends to be a llama, and sometimes he pretends to be a whale… Anything BUT a Siamese cat!

His Mama sends him to his room so that he can think about behaving like the cat he really is. While bouncing on his big boy bed, Skippyjon's wild imagination takes over again as he catches his reflection in a mirror. "Holy guacamole," Skippyjon exclaims. "My ears are too big for my head, my head is too big for my body. I am not a Siamese cat – I am a CHIHUAHUA!"

And not just any Chihuahua. He dons a mask, a cape, and an accent, and transforms into Skippito Friskito, the greatest canine sword fighter in old Mexico! But when the local pack of chihuahuas is terrorized by the gigantic bee, Alfredo Buzzito El Blimpo Bublebeeto Bandito, will Skippyjon be a 'fraidy-cat or the top dog?

Based on the book by Judy Schachner, Skippyjon Jones is an enchanting musical about unleashing your powerful imagination and following your dreams.

Recommended for grades K-3.
