Calling all children (and children at heart)! This Saturday at 3 pm, the Michigan Theater will present an exciting musical adaptation of the iconic children’s book, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, written by the series’ creator Mo Willems himself. As a part of the Michigan Theater’s ‘Not Just for Kids’ Live Performing Arts Series presented by Toyota, this show promises an engaging mix of puppetry, pigeon song, and performing arts gold for the entire family.
For some context, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! is a humorously illustrated children’s book starring a pigeon who really, really wants to convince the reader to let them drive the bus. The book, Willems’ first of many, received the Caldecott Honor in addition to multiple picture book awards, including being among the “Top 100 Picture Books of All Time” in a 2012 poll by School Library Journal.
Tickets start at $20 each for general admission, with Meet & Greet tickets available at VIP prices.
