TYA opens new season with favorite story




 Theatre for Young America presents Chicken Little at Union Station City Stage. Chicken Little runs at Theatre for Young America October 16th to November 10th, 2018.  Theatre for Young America offers this production that is directed by Artistic Director Valerie M. Mackey. The cast features the talents of Kyra Weinberger, Eric Johansen, Mikala Sullivan and Franci Witte.

Chicken Little is a musical theater version of the timeless fable about panic in the barnyard when Chicken Little mistakenly announces that the sky is falling.  Along with the Rooster, the Goose and the Fox, the little chicken sings and enacts the whole story because these animals happen to be an ambitious musical group, The Chicken Little Band.  A farcical romp full of mistaken identities and comical confusion arising from thoughtless panic and following the wrong leader.
