Theatreworks USA's SKIPPYJON JONES Hops to The Alden Today

Theatreworks USA's musical production of "Skippyjon Jones," which tells the tale of a little cat with big dreams, will be performed at McLean's Alden Theatre at 2 p.m. today, Dec. 8. Tickets are $15/$10 for McLean Community Center district residents. The theatre is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue.

Based on the book by Judy Schachner, "Skippyjon Jones" is a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams. Sometimes he pretends to be a bird; sometimes he pretends to be a llama. One day, he transforms himself into Skippito Friskito, the greatest canine sword fighter in Old Mexico. But when he is challenged by a bullying bee, will he be a 'fraidy cat or the top dog? Directed by Peter Flynn and choreographed by Devanand Janki, this hour-long show is recommended for children age four and older.

Built in 1975, the Robert Ames Alden Theatre, The Alden, is a cultural resource for the citizens of McLean that presents interdisciplinary and high-quality performances, lectures and educational programs for audiences of all ages. The Alden is ADA-compliant and will make arrangements for accommodations. To request this information in an alternate format, call 711.
