Fall 2017: Classes


"ELVES" (ages 4-5)

Stuart is just a mouse - yet his brother George is a person! They and their tiny friends, Wheels the Hamster, Tiptoe the Ladybug, Spot the Dog and Croon the Canary, have lots of fun and even make a wonderful new friend - the beautiful bird, Margalo. But then the family cat, Snowbell, teams up with the neighborhood kitties to cause mischief, and Stuart and his petite pals are in for a surprise!

This musical is just right for non-readers who love to play-act and pretend. We also play lots of fun imagination games in a gentle environment.

So come along with “STUART LITTLE” and the gang - some small friends on one big adventure!
