A SUPERBUNNY CHRISTMAS Comes to Actors Fund Arts Center This Weekend
A Superbunny Christmas, an original children's musical based on the second installment of the award winning children's book series Thumperino Superbunny by Amber L. Spradlin, is coming to the Actors Fund Arts Center this weekend, December 13th and 14th at 2:00 p.m.
In this tale, Superbunny, a New York City house rabbit blessed with super-powers, discovers that the star has been stolen from atop the tree in Christmas Tree Plaza. The holiday will be ruined for millions of children if the star is not found in time for Christmas. He sets out on a mission to return this pinnacle of Christmas joy to New York City. Along the way, he uncovers a vile plot, rescues 100 of his fellow rabbits from an evil villain, and wins the trust of a special new friend. Superbunny teaches many positive lessons to children like over-coming physical challenges, good eating habits, determination, sharing, teamwork, sensitivity to the needs of others, and much, much more.
Superbunny is joined by a charming cast of characters played by a mix of live actors and puppets...the spunky Minniewheat, true blue NYPD mounted policeman Officer Mike, the greedy villain Bertie Biggs, and loveable dancing reindeer Champs. With a rollicking score that covers all styles from memorable Christmas classic to country-pop and an audience dance along moment, it's a show that's certain to bring smiles to "kids" from age 6 to 60 and beyond.
A Superbunny Christmas features book and lyrics by Michael MacKenzie Wills (creator/writer/director of the MAC Award winning Operation Opera and the New York Times recommended kid's show The Adventures of Superbunny), a seasoned writer director who has brought more than 25 children's musicals to the stage. Wills is joined in putting this project together by spirited composer Alastair William King (Outlaws: The Ballad of Billy the Kid, The Adventures of Superbunny), veteran arranger and music director C. Colby Sachs (composer of the notorious Amy Fisher: The Musical and A Cow Named Cow), with choreography by J. Joseph Burke.
