The Big Deal: Dallas Children’s Theater Presents ‘The Island Of The Skog’

by Gila Espinoza 17 Apr 2019 1:00 AM

“The best-laid plans of mice and well, Skog, are upended in a lively musical adventure that navigates land and sea in “The Island of the Skog.” In this stage adaptation of the book by the same name, iconic illustrations from beloved children’s author Steven Kellogg’s come vibrantly to life onstage as Jenny, Bouncer, and the Rowdies seek a calm new home and find bigger obstacles than they ever imagined. When Jenny and her mice friends grow weary of ravenous cats, noisy humans, and peril on the streets, they decide a new island paradise is the order of the day. Led by the surly Captain Bouncer, the Rough-riding Rowdies think they’ve hit the jackpot until they discover that a ‘giant’ already has dibs on their newfound home. The Rowdies and Skog each devise a survival of the fittest plan that, in the end, only points out the flaws that come with assuming the worst and refusing to compromise. A delightfully charming and gentle story that brings to life the author’s beloved illustrations and characters.”

The Island of the Skog” runs at Dallas Children’s Theater from May 3 – 25. Win this Big Deal and you can take your family of 4 to this musical adventure on opening night, May 3, 7:30 p.m. performance.
