Anna Dewdney's Visit


Anna Dewdney & Jennifer Kirkeby
Stages Theatre Company had the pleasure of a visit from Anna Dewdney, the very popular author and illustrator of LLAMA LLAMA RED PAJAMA. The cast was very excited to meet her! She saw our musical adaptation twice and signed her book for many thrilled audience members.

Since we opened on January 13th, we have been averaging ten shows a week. By the time we close on February 12th, approximately 22,000 people will have seen this show. It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of this fun production. It is particularly rewarding to hear parents thank us for bringing their child's favorite book to life. I love to talk to kids about books when we greet them in our receiving line after the show. Thanks for the visit, Anna, and we look forward to reading more LLAMA books!

Thank you so much, both for the glimpse backstage, and for the taste of the visit with Anna Dewdney! It all seems so exciting, and once again I'm wishing I was close enough to be able to attend a performance (or two).
