A. D. Players Children's Theater will open its season October 23rd with the musical Bunnicula, adapted for the stage by Jon Klein
from the popular children's book by Deborah and James Howe, with lyrics by Jon Klein
and music by Chris Jeffries. Get a first look at the show in the photos below!
When all of the vegetables in the Monroe house start turning white, Chester the cat and Harold the dog become convinced that Bunnicula, the family's new pet rabbit, may really be a vegetable vampire and a threat to the household! But is the bunny really a danger or just different? This musical adaptation is appropriate for kids of all ages and teaches the very important lesson of not judging a book by its cover.
The cast of Bunnicula includes A. D. Players resident actors Braden Hunt as Harold, Stephen Hurst as Chester, Craig Griffin as Robert Monroe
, and Travis Hayes as the puppeteer for Bunnicula. A. D. Players intern Trisha Wise will play Ann Monroe and child actors David Helms and Everett Go play brothers Pete and Toby.
