Stellaluna and Other Tales

Based upon the works by Janell Cannon
Book and lyrics by Alyn Cardarelli
Music by Steve Goers

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (

Join Jannell Cannon’s adorable animal creations as they bring their simple “Hello, World!” wisdom to this charming musical adaptation of three of her beloved books. You’ll meet the very vivacious Verdi, an energetic young snake who doesn’t want to turn green and grow up. And the proud and clever Pinduli who turns a bad bullying situation around to teach her harassers a lesson. And of course Stellaluna, who makes the most of getting lost until she can discover who she really is. With magical music and delightful dancing, you’ll have a wonderful time at the watering hole with Stellaluna and her friends!
