The very popular children’s book “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” comes to life on the Sutter Street stage. Directed by Elly Award winning director Allen Schmeltz and starring Monique Lonergan as the Mouse and Kenny Gagni as the Boy this production will delight children and adults alike.
It all began so simply … the Boy remembers, “Mom had gone to Aunt Rose’s house to bring her over a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.” They’re the best cookies in the world, and she left some for him. He’s also got a new comic book, “Jungleman, Beastmaster of the Amazon,” so he heads for the backyard. Then the Mouse shows up — hungry, talkative, and not to be ignored.
“If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” continues at 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 21. Tickets are $17 general, $15 seniors, $13 children 12 and younger. Group rates and birthday parties are available. Reservations can be made by calling (916) 353-1001 or online at SutterStreetTheatre.com.
