Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk! Sal and her mother are picking delicious blueberries to can for the long winter months ahead to make delicious desserts. On the other side of Maine's Blueberry Hill, a mama bear and baby bear are filling up for the long hibernation. But somehow Sal and a baby bear have a mixed up adventure and lose their mothers!

Director Jess Jung says of the production, "Robert McCloskey's book is the perfect tapestry to illustrate different types of mother daughter relationships, and I am thrilled that this talented all-female cast will debut this amazing musical," says Jessica Jung, Director of Blueberries for Sal. "The playwrights and I have worked together to find these complicated, funny, and heartwarming moments in this story of a fateful day on Blueberry Hill. Mothers prepare us for the hard times in life, just like these mothers are preparing their children for the winter months ahead, and sometimes we forget how much these moments make us who we are. DC area families are going to delight in the playful music and the classic story brought to the stage, and I cannot wait to see their faces!"
