Well-known show comes steaming in this weekend

January 30, 2013 by  

‘The Little Engine that Could’ is one of childhood’s most famous stories, and there will be a chance for kids and their parents to reacquaint themselves with the charming story this weekend.

The story tells of a little engine to a train who dreams about someday leaving the train yard and pulling the bigger cars down the main trunk line. The problem is that she must convince one of the bigger trains, named Big Silver, that she can accomplish this task and is worthy of working on the main line as an engine.

Perhaps thanks to the promotion work of local print companies, this timeless story was sold out during its premier season and teaches all who see it the value of hard work and determination, as well as the true meaning of friendship. The performance is being held at the larger Satellite stage in Upper Saddle River. People of all ages will appreciate the story and the on-stage performance and music that accompany it. The songs will have the audience humming along and tapping their toes, while bringing smiles to the faces of the young.

Tickets for this performance are $12 and all age groups are welcome. The show will be performed this Saturday, February 2, starting at 3:00 pm at the Saddle River Valley Cultural Center – a short drive from Hohokus. For tickets or to learn more, please visit the Saddle River Valley Cultural Center website or call the box office at 201-825-3366.
