Llama Llama Red Pajama by award-winning Author Anna Dewdney premieres at Stages Theatre Company (STC) Jan. 13 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. This musical production, adapted by Playwright Jennifer Kirkeby and music by Shirley Mier, is perfect for all ages and runs under an hour in length.

The script features six adult female actors portraying different mama llamas, and six youth actors portraying different baby llamas. “Each of the baby llamas has their own bedtime rituals. The audience will instantly relate to The Common issue of trying to get their children to go to bed. They will be introduced to Carey the actress, Holly who plays soccer, Lonnie the magician, Joey who loves to play golf, Billy “The Next Tap Dancing Sensation!”, and Lana who would rather read than go to sleep,” says Kirkeby.

Upcoming events for “Llama Llama Red Pajama” include an appearance by Author Anna Dewdney at the Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul on Saturday, Jan. 28 beginning at 10:30 a.m.; a book signing with Dewdney following the Sunday, Jan. 29 afternoon performance at Stages Theatre Company (annual fundraiser, Snowball) and at the Mall of America on Tuesday, Feb. 7 for Toddler Tuesday with sample performances at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Llama Llama Red Pajama begins Jan. 13 and ends Feb. 12 and tickets can be purchased by visiting www.stagestheatre.org for performance dates and times, or by calling the Box Office at (952) 979-1111, Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for children (ages 5 to 17) and seniors (60+). Lap passes are available for free (ages 0 to 2) and $5 (ages 3 to 4).

Sounds like a fun play Jennifer and the make up is really cute. Wish I wasn't so far away and could see it!
Take care,

Thanks, Martha! It is a very sweet story. Don't you want to visit MN instead of staying in CA this winter? It's very warm for this time of year! ;-)
