The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust presents Max & Ruby: Bunny Party at the Byham Theater. This performance is part of the Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents series. Produced by Koba Entertainment, this live children’s musical is an adaptation from the book by internationally-acclaimed children’s author and illustrator, Rosemary Wells. The popular children’s book also was made into a television series that has been seen around the globe.
Featuring colorful stage sets and costumes, and original songs, Max & Ruby: Bunny Party was conceived and directed by Patti Caplette, artistic director for Koba, along with a dynamic creative team of artists including Juno Award-winner Norman Foote (music and lyrics), Beth Kates (scenic design), Shaun Kettner and Peter Harrison (puppets), Annie Armit and Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet wardrobe (costume design), and Kristen Sawatsky and Laura Kolisnyk (associate choreographers).
In the live stage production of Max & Ruby: Bunny Party, a surprise party is being planned for someone special, and bunny siblings Max and Ruby have a-million-and-one things to do before the big event. Join in the fun as they embark on a musical bus ride to the East Bunnyhop General Store, where they decide on what to buy for the Super Duper Special Birthday Guest. Back at home, Louise arrives with her beauty kit and everyone gets a makeover – even Max! When everything is all set for the party, Ruby discovers some uninvited guests including an engaging Robot, a giant Spider, and an adorable Slug. Celebrate the universal nature of sibling relationships with Max & Ruby: Bunny Party!
