Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the bravest Chihuahua of them all? Skippyjon Jones the Siamese cat who thinks he's a Mexican Chihuahua of course! While his sisters listen to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Skippy heads off for the REAL adventure awaiting him in his closet.

"This effort is clever, comical and boisterous...Parents can be forgiven for wondering if this isn’t too big a dose of gender, not to mention ethnic, stereotypes.

"The doggone delightful kids musical 'Skippyjon Jones Snow What (& the 7 Chihuahuas)' comes with an easygoing lesson: Imagination can lead you anywhere you want to go...Del Aguila’s terrific cast of actors, many of whom play more than one role, and fleet staging for Theatreworks USA remind that you don’t need a big budget to make a big impact. A magic mirror trick and a fluffy woodland chorus make for dandy visuals. The show doesn’t just teach about imagination. It follows its own lesson." Full Review
