Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical

Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical

May 27 to June 28, 2015 | On the Hertz Stage
Part of the Family Series

Based on the beloved children's book by Mo Willems

A great time for children ages 3–10.

Trixie, Daddy, and Knuffle Bunny take a trip to the Laundromat. But the adventure takes a dramatic turn when Trixie realizes somebunny was left behind. Using live actors and beautiful projections, this play tells a true-to-life tale about what happens when Daddy's in charge and things go terribly, hilariously wrong. 

Based on his beloved Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, six-time Emmy Award-winner Mo Willems joins Grammy Award-winning composer Michael Silversher to lovingly celebrate the heart and heartache of toddler drama. This play is being produced in partnership with the High Museum of Art’s exhibition Seriously Silly! The art & whimsy of Mo Willems.

Alliance Rendering 1

The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
