The 2018-19 season kicks off with original, family favorite production

Thursday, May 31, 2018 — ATLANTA (May 31, 2018) – Families are invited to “moooove” over to the Center for Puppetry Arts during the production of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, June 12-July 29! Based on the book by Doreen Cronin with illustrations by Betsy Lewin, “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” is a New York Times bestseller and a 2001 Caldecott Honoree that tells the story of what happens when Farmer Brown’s cows learn to type and go on strike. The book was adapted for the puppet stage by the Center’s Artistic Director Jon Ludwig and Resident Puppet Builder Jason Hines.

Recommended for ages 4 and up, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type features rod and marionette puppetry styles performed by puppeteers Brian Harrison, Mandy Mitchell, Amy Sweeney and Tim Sweeney, with live music by Dolph Amick. The witty production is the Center for Puppetry Arts’ first mainstage Family Series show of the 2018-19 season, kicking off the 40th anniversary year.

Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is a great way to start summer off on the right foot,” said Center for Puppetry Arts Artistic Director Jon Ludwig. “Since the production is based on the award winning book, it will remind young readers that reading over summer break is a fun and important hobby.”
