Family-friendly Frederick play to feature animal antics

September 19, 2018 by  

Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET) will present the family-friendly play ‘Click, Clack, Moo’, through The Fun Company, its family theater. James E. Grote adapted the play from the original book by Doreen Cronin.

The story concerns the residents of Farmer Brown’s barn, especially a small group of cows who want to complain that they are cold, and would like electric blankets. To tell him, they find an old typewriter and start writing notes. The farmer ignores them, and when he does, they go on strike, telling him they will not give him any milk until they get the blankets. The hens follow suit by refusing to lay eggs.

The production considers how the animals and Farmer Brown work together to find a solution to their problems. Shows like this can benefit if the theater works with a poster printing company to create advertisements for the production.

The director at the helm is Jeremy Myers, who worked with Jim Grote, who wrote the script, and George Howe, who composed the music. It was put together in Chicago, although they were collaborating on two other projects as well. Since Myers is already familiar with their work, he is delighted to bring it to Frederick audiences.

‘Click, Clack, Moo’ opens this Saturday, September 22, running until October 14, at 1:30 pm every Saturday and Sunday.
