If You Give a Mouse a Cookie at City Theatre, Detroit

What happens when a little boy gives a mouse a tasty treat? If you’ve read the famous children’s book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff, you likely know the ending. Still, though, seeing the action unfold on stage is quite the experience for kids.

Head over to City Theatre in Detroit to see If You Give a Mouse a Cookie on June 6-7, 2015. Follow a young boy in a day when he shares his snack with a hungry, demanding mouse. You may recall the text “If a mouse is given a cookie, he is bound to want some milk. If he is given some milk, what will he want next?” We learn a hilarious lesson about cause-and-effect.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie will be performing a total of five shows in the first weekend of June. Show times are as follows:

  • Saturday: 11 a.m. and 2 and 5 p.m.
  • Sunday: 2 and 5 p.m.

The energetic characters keep the children engaged with chaos and disorder. All ages are welcome and the first 300 children at each performance receive a free bag of cookies. Don’t miss the heartwarming stage performance of the tasty chain reaction that they won’t forget.

Tickets for the show are $19.

If the children have read the book, they will want to go to the play. If they go to the play, will they stop asking for cookies? Probably not.
