Review: Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
June 12 - July 29
Cows and Typewriters, What’s Not to Love?
Clickety, clack, mooooooove on over to the Center for Puppetry Arts for a fun, interactive rendition of the Doreen Cronin children’s book, “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type.”
This show is great for kids who love to sing; kids who love animals; kids who love puppets; and parents/grandparents who love to laugh. We were surrounded by children from ages 2-12 and they all loved the show.
Our youngest friend, Palmer, age 4, loved the animal puppets. My daughter, Cricket, age 5, enjoyed the acting, specifically the cows, who were hilarious. My daughter Peyton, age 8, loves music and liked “all the songs and sing-a-longs best.”
The show is a mix of narration, acting and puppets, with singing and audience interaction. The scenery looks like it came straight from the book.
After the show, head upstairs to make a cow hand puppet. While my favorite element of the performance was all the laughs, the puppets the kids brought home were a bonus. I love hearing their little voices putting on their own plays at home. Seeing Click, Clack, Moo inspired that imaginative play.
Know Before You Go: The show ran close to 45 minutes, so make sure everyone uses the potty before you take your seats. The theater was a tad chilly; you may want to pack a sweater, just in case.
Cows that type? Chickens on strike? Farmer Brown can’t believe his ears. Join the barnyard fun in this adaptation of the award-winning children’s book. No shows July 4. See website for showtimes. Ages 4 and older, $19.50; ages 2 and younger, free.
