Special to The Star
One child in the Little family is quite different from the rest, but only Snowbell, the Littles’ pet cat seems to notice. This is no surprise, since well-dressed, perfectly mannered Stuart Little is actually a mouse. Based on E. B. White’s classic children’s book of the same name, the play produced by Dallas Children’s Theater relates many of the endearing situations Stuart shares with his human family. The touring production comes to the MSU Riley Center tonight at 7 p.m. family show performance.
As a mouse living in New York with his much larger human family members, Stuart experiences plenty of adventures—and misadventures. He is terrorized by the family cat, becomes friends with a beautiful bird the family cares for, and even races toy boats in Central Park.
As the play progresses, Stuart discovers that being small doesn’t mean he can’t do big things as he learns lessons about friendship, loyalty, and life in the Little family. This play is suitable for the entire family, but is most appealing to kindergarteners through fifth-graders. For Fans of: children’s books written by E.B. White, including Stuart Little and Charlotte’s Web
Tickets are $18 and $10 at the MSU Riley Center box office. Tickets can be purchased online at www.msurileycenter.com or by calling the box office at 601-696-2200.
