About the Show
A return engagement of the interactive musical for children about the power of good deeds. Based on Israeli author Itzhak Schweiger-Dmi’el's classic tale 'Hanna’s Sabbath Dress.'
Hanna meets her friends Zuzi the dog and Edna the cow for an afternoon of play, which leads to an unexpected and meaningful adventure. Children are invited to help create Hanna’s interactive world and take part in the moonlight magic. Recommended for ages 2 to 8.
"Overall, it’s a delightful little event for young audiences…Throughout the performance, the actors encourage participation from the kids sitting up front…The production’s design is lovely in its simplicity, with surprises for youth and adult audience alike…Overall, the simplistic approach to the design supports the quiet kind of magic that resonates through Hanna’s world of childhood wonder."
"Delightful and inspiring...The three performers in this show, Kate Mulberry, Matt Webster, and Case Wilson, are very enthusiastic and engaging—singing beautifully, enunciating their words and successfully telling the story with appropriately broad gestures and lots of smiles. The excellent pianist/musical director, Peter Hodgson, along with the cast are all dressed in white, performing in front of the simple but delightful set which includes a white tree and house."
"Although a grown woman, Watson portrays a young child convincingly, without excessive emoting, and she avoids coming off like a whiny grown-up in the process...Mostly a three-person show, interspersed with frequent audience participation throughout the 50 minute run time...The interactive portion as well as the skilled portrayal of the actors made for quite an enjoyable experience!"
