From July 19-28, Niagara University Theatre will continue its mission to present engaging, delightful theater for young audiences (TYA) productions with Click, Clack, Moo, presented by The Friends of Niagara University Theatre.
Based on the wildly popular and award-winning book, Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin, this musical will be sure to moo-ve you! Farmer Brown has a pleasant, peaceful, productive farm…or so he thinks. The animals are unhappy with their cold barn at night. He does not speak Cow, Duck, or Hen; but when they discover a typewriter and teach themselves to communicate, the musical shenanigans begin!
Click, Clack, Moo will be directed by Steve Braddock, director of NU Theatre, and associate professor Terri Filips Vaughan, with choreography by Vaughan. Music direction is by Bridget Moriarty, assistant professor, with costume design by associate professor Maureen Stevens and scenic design by associate professor David Dwyer of Niagara University’s department of theatre and fine arts.
Cast and crew members include NU theatre students Sonia Angeli, Ashton, Decaro, Skylah Fields, Zach Gammel, K. Gorny (stage manager), Audrey Grout, Michael Kelleher, Justin Pope, Kayla Reumann and Ronnie Stewart.
Click, Clack, Moo will be performed at the Leary Theatre in the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre on the NU campus. The play will be presented at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 19, Friday, July 20, Saturday, July 21, and Friday, July 27. An afternoon production will be presented at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24. For early risers, the production will be staged at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 25, and Saturday, July 28.
