“This family-friendly show features a multi-talented cast of young actors, musicians and dancers,” said Barbara Webber, executive director of Compass Rose Theater. “Area youth ages 9-17 auditioned for the roles, and the best of the best were selected to embody the well-known and beloved characters we remember from childhood.”

Cast meet and greets, an opening reception, and an after-show tea party are planned.
