Description:

This a wacky revue mixing well-loved folk songs with a crazy collection of melody and fun introduces Mother Goose to a whole new generation of audiences. Enormously popular, the original production of A Pocketful Of Rhymes - staged with only a chair and six blocks - played limited engagements on Broadway and even inspired a CBS television series.
A Pocketful Of Rhymes is an energetic musical revue featuring Mother Goose's "greatest hits." Classic nursery rhymes are set to a catchy contemporary score as Mother Goose teaches her young friends a variety of lessons. Moving through a variety of styles of 20th Century American music, Mother Goose and the kids explore favorites like "The Spider and The Fly", "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." They end with Mother Goose telling the story of a thousand years of human civilization in music and rhyme.



A Pocketful Of Rhymes is perfect for companies looking to do a show with featured roles for children. With no dancing requirement and minimal set needs, the show is easy to produce. The tuneful score paired with timeless stories makes A Pocketful Of Rhymes a theatrical staple.
