Old MacDonald: Beyond the Farm is a multi-sensory story designed for the youngest audience members. Interact with the actors, join in song and dance, and see and touch the colorful props. There are intentionally no seats for the children to sit in because we want them to stand, move and engage with the actors as the show unfolds!
Old MacDonald lives happily on her farm with all her animals. But Duck is sad because his birthday is tomorrow and his pen-pals live far away. Then Old Macdonald has an idea to cheer up her web-footed friend. Join her as she journeys beyond the farm to meet Duck’s pen-pals in faraway places. We’ll visit breezy islands, bustling cities, and lush jungles to collect Duck’s birthday presents, then return to the farm and surprise Duck with a special birthday party.
Developed by Nina Meehan and Simon Trumble for audiences age 6 mo. to 3 years old. Children under the age of 6 mo. do not require a ticket.
