Busytown is always buzzing with activity. Just like the beloved and busy books of Richard Scarry, Busytown the Musical gets at the question on everyone’s mind: “What do people do all day?”

That’s where Huckle Cat comes in—he’ll take us on a tour of his great neighborhood while Huckle’s best friend Lowly the Worm has his own adventure. Not over the river and through the woods but rather; to the post office, hospital, airport, aboard Captain Salty’s pirate-y ship, and on a railroad journey with the help of the audience and Train the Dog, until finally reaching Grandma’s house.
This musical radiates with simple, silly joy while bringing to life the impossible physics and interspecies harmony of Richard Scarry’s world. In this bustling musical, your favorite Busytown characters will sing and dance the answer, as we follow Huckle the Cat and Lowly through the winding maze of bakers, farmers, grocers, police officers, fire fighters, cars and trucks and things that go, and so much more!
The busyness starts September 26. This musical is recommended for 3 & up.
