This is a wacky revue, mixing well-loved folk songs with a crazy collection of melody and fun, introducing Mother Goose to a whole new generation of audiences. Enormously popular, the original production of A Pocketful Of Rhymes – staged with only a chair and six blocks – played limited engagements on Broadway and even inspired a CBS television series.A Pocketful of Rhymes is an energetic musical revue that features Mother Goose's "greatest hits." Classic nursery rhymes are set to a catchy contemporary score as Mother Goose teaches her young friends a variety of lessons. Moving through a variety of styles of twentieth-century American music, Mother Goose and the kids explore favorites like "The Spider and the Fly," "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." They end with Mother Goose telling the story of a thousand years of human civilization in music and rhyme.A Pocketful of Rhymes is perfect for companies that are looking to do a show with featured roles for children. With no dancing requirement and minimal set needs, the show is easy to produce. The tuneful score, paired with timeless stories, makes A Pocketful of Rhymes a theatrical staple.

Kindergarten through 5th Grade. This is our youngest group for our novice actors. Most have never tried theatre before. We focus on introducing singing, acting and dancing in manageable steps without overwhelming them. We teach them the basic aspects of stagecraft, and we play theatre games to reinforce those concepts. We aim for our "Little Stars" to get that theatre bug!
