Barnyard animals that claim the barn is too cold for comfort?
Based on the children’s book by Doreen Cronin, this musical comedy presented by New Stage starting today explores themes of standing up for yourself, working together, and the art of negotiation.
The Cows, Hen, and Duck try to communicate with Farmer Brown, but he cannot understand cow’s moos, the cackle of chickens or the quack of the duck.
They work all day to provide milk and eggs, but when their request for electric blankets to warm the drafty barn is ignored, action must be taken. Join the barnyard animals — and their trusty typewriter— as they engage in peaceful protest to improve their working conditions.
Watch as the barnyard animals along with their trusty typewriter engage in peaceful protest to improve their working conditions. Cows that type? Hens on strike? Whoever heard of such a thing?
