On March 16 at 11:00 a.m., Theatre for Young America is presenting a new collection of "three" stories, Triple Play Two! This play is free with museum admission.
The play is comprised of three tales adapted by Gene Mackey: The Three Rabbits-Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail; The Three Billy Goats Gruff; and a lesser known nursery rhyme The Three Little Fishes"
The first tale comes from Beatrix Potter's books about Peter Rabbit and his family. The music for this story is by Rita Lovett. The second tale of “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” is based on the very Old Norse tale of brother goats and a troll who lived under the bridge. The music for this story is by Molly Jessup. The third story of “Three Little Fishies” is based on an American Southern nursery rhyme that includes both English language and pretend nonsensical “fish” talk. THE LITTLE FISHIES record was the number one hit record of 1939 in America as recorded by the Kay Kyser orchestra.
