WHAT'S THE SHOW ABOUT: This is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart Little who is born into an ordinary New York family. All the charm, wisdom and joy of the White original are captured in this adaptation. The many adventures, big and small, of Stuart Little are brought to life in this story theatre presentation. The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a "real people's world."
