Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical


I don't know if you are familiar with the book Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems, but it's hilarious. (He also wrote Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.) C & S brought this book home from their Preschool library on a regular basis. Well, apparently the book has been made into a musical. Who knew? I sure didn't. Not until R received an email from a local Arts Center with show times. Last night, I braved the storm and took C & S to see it. It was pretty funny, and the boys loved it.

Here are C & S waiting for the play to start. Like the VERY big smiles? They were excited. We sat up on the balcony, which they said was "so cool." - Family

The play was only an hour long, which was perfect for the kids. It was very well done and very fun. I was impressed by the solo Trixi sang when she realizes that Knuffle Bunny is missing. The entire song is gibberish. I can't imagine trying to remember a song like that. The puppeteers brought out a life sized Knuffle Bunny that she danced with. It was hilarious.

After the play, they had a cupcake dessert. S was loving his cupcake. Can you tell? - Family

C enjoyed his cupcake as well. He's just being silly. Not surprising. - Family

We had a great time. I was really impressed by the staff working at the venue as well. They made a point to greet each child and talk to them like grown-ups. I heard them call the children "gentlemen" and "ladies." They made a point to make the evening an event to remember for each child.

After the show, we had to pick up the next 2 books in the "Knuffle Bunny" Series and a stuffed "Knuffle Bunny" for each boy. - Family

I'm so glad I got to go with them to the Play. Usually, R takes the boys out on big things since he doesn't always get to spend so much time with them. But, R wanted to have a "Daddy-Daughter Date" with MK and let me have a special night with the boys.
