Are you familiar with the book series based on If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff? My first exposure to the series was when my daughter was a newborn. If You Take a Mouse To School was one of the books that we received in the hospital when she was born.

Etico Productions and Performance Network Present the Children’s Favorite If You Give a Mouse a Cookie May 30-31
ANN ARBOR, MI (February 2, 2015) Produced in partnership with Etico Productions, Performance Network’s If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a delightful family production exploring the delicious chain reaction set in motion when a little boy offers a cookie to a visiting mouse. Performances are May 30-31 at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are $15 each and may be purchased online at www.pntheatre.org or by calling the box office at 734-663-0681.
Directed by John Manfredi and starring Eric Eilersen as The Boy and Sarah McEneaney as The Mouse, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a wonderful tale of a boy who tries to meet the demands of a very needy house guest. Based on the popular children’s book by Laura Numeroff, this whimsical stage adaptation examines when innocent milk-and-cookie snack time goes from mishap to catastrophe faster than the twitch of a whisker!
“This show has always been very popular for Etico Productions,” said Manfredi. “It’s messy, it’s fun and it really gets kids excited about the arts. It’s a great family outing and I’m happy we were able to reschedule it from December.”
Michigan’s Etico Productions has been a leader in providing live family entertainment since 2007, including creating the Michigan Premieres of Alexander and the Terrible No Good Very Bad Day and Good Night Moon. Etico has also adapted other If You-stories including If You Take a Mouse to School and If You Give Pig a Pancake.
Performances of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie are May 30-31 at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are $15 each.
