"Cows that type?  Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!" Farmer Brown cries.

When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declared the farm a tech-free zone.  He takes her laptop in the cold barn with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets.

"No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!"

So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity.  No blankets? No milk! No eggs!

Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands?  Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously moving musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

The following performance dates and times are for schools only.

The amazing true story of the orphaned baby hippo and 130-year-old giant turtle whose remarkable friendship touched millions around the world.

The inspiring true story of two great friends, a baby hippo named Owen and a 130-yr-old giant tortoise named Mzee. When Owen was stranded after a tsunami, villagers in Kenya worked tirelessly to rescue him. Then, to everyone's amazement, the orphan hippo and the elderly tortoise adopted each other. Now they are inseparable, swimming, eating, and playing together. Adorable photos e-mailed from friend to friend quickly made them worldwide celebrities. Here is a joyous reminder that in times of trouble, friendship is stronger than the differences that too often pull us apart.
