The Hylton Performing Arts Center will present the first performance in its inaugural Hylton Family Series, “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical,” on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 4 p.m.
Six-time Emmy Award-winning author and illustrator Mo Willems adapted his Caldecott Honor-winning children’s book into a family musical, with a score by Grammy Award-winning composer Michael Silversher.
In this charming tale set in a Brooklyn neighborhood, 16-month-old Trixie and her father take a trip to their local laundromat accompanied by Trixie’s favorite stuffed toy, Knuffle (pronounced ka-nuff-ul) Bunny.
After the excitement of playing with the dirty clothes and loading the washing machine, Daddy suggests that they walk home to have a snack. Trixie quickly realizes that they left Knuffle Bunny behind, and a hilarious adventure to rescue her beloved friend begins.
Directed by Rosemary Newcott, this performance is presented in partnership with the Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences on Tour.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children. Youth through grade 12 can obtain children’s tickets when accompanied by an adult. Visit the box office, charge by phone at 888-945-2468 or see hyltoncenter.org.
