LINCOLN CITY – “Click, Clack, Moo”, a new musical based on the Caldecott Award-winning book by Doreen Cronin with pictures by Betsy Lewin, is coming to the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Friday, May 15.
All day long Farmer Brown hears “click clack moo, clickety clackety moo…” The cows are typing and protesting their working conditions! It’s a hilariously “moo-ving” new musical about compromise, based on the award-winning book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.
The show began its national tour in fall 2009. “Click, Clack, Moo” is able, as are all Theatreworks USA productions, to play a wide range of venues, from large Broadway-sized performing arts centers in major metropolitan areas to elementary school cafeterias in small towns.
This Theatreworks USA performance is making its way to the Oregon Coast thanks to the support of the Studios to Schools Project (Oregon Community Foundation), the Walter R. Behrens Foundation and the Lincoln City Cultural Center. These grants will allow more than 500 Lincoln County students in grades K-3 to experience this beloved book on stage, making new paths to literacy and understanding.
Theatreworks USA has a distinguished history of not only providing young audiences with their first taste of the performing arts, but also giving young actors, writers, directors, and designers an early opportunity to work in this field. A list of Theatreworks USA alumni reads like a veritable “who’s who” of theatre: including four-time Tony-winning director Jerry Zaks, Tony-winning actors John Lloyd Young, Roger Bart, Chuck Cooper, and John Glover and esteemed performers F. Murray Abraham, Henry Winkler, and Judy Kuhn, just to name a few. Since 1961, Theatreworks USA has enlightened, entertained, and instructed over 85 million people in 49 states and Canada, now performing for about three million people annually. Every year, the company tours approximately 16 shows from its ever-growing repertoire of 125 plays and musicals.
