The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple will host Theatreworks USA’s Production of “Click Clack Moo” at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27.
“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 declares the farm a “tech-free zone.” He confiscates 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? Audience members will find out in Theatreworks USA’s production of “Click Clack Moo,” based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.
A Wiggles and Giggles interactive parent-child craft workshop will be held prior to the show at 10 a.m.
After the show, patrons are invited to stay for an Open House for the center’s new Creative and Performing Arts Academy, which offers evening and weekend courses for students in Pre-K through 12th grade. Courses include such topics as visual art, theatre, music, dance, magic and more. The Open House is scheduled for noon to 2 p.m.
Refreshments will be available for purchase. Show tickets are $8 per person and the Wiggles and Giggles craft workshop is $5 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the SCC Box Office, or by calling 570-344-1111.
