Whoever You Are

This spring we bring to life the poignantly inspiring story-poem by the popular, best-selling children’s author, Mem Fox. Every day, everywhere, all over the world, “Joys are the same, and love is the same, pain is the same, and blood is the same. Smiles are the same, and hearts are just the same.” Come with us as we soar to the heart of imagination with a world-premiere musical adaptation that weaves across cultures and generations to celebrate the bond that unites us all.

Crenshaw

This magically engaging story, proving that family, friendship and resilience are found in the heart of the imagination, will grace our Hopkins Jaycees Studio in May. Crenshaw is a cat. He’s large, he’s outspoken, and…he’s imaginary. This unforgettable creature comes into 10 year old Jackson’s life to help him and his family as they fall on hard times and may have to live in their minivan…again. But is an imaginary friend enough to save this family from losing everything? This world premiere adaptation, based on the touching book by the Newbery Medal-winning author of The One and Only Ivan, confirms that friends matter—whether real or imaginary.
