Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical is a fun-filled, heartfelt musical adventure about Trixie, Daddy, Knuffle Bunny, and their big trip out to the Laundromat. You'll love the antics as Mom raises a seasoned eyebrow when Daddy learns it can be tricky to do the laundry with Trixie.
It sounds so simple, right? Just a quick trip out to wash some dirty laundry... but when the trip threatens to separate Trixie from her favourite bunny, things go hilariously wrong! A hero is needed… Daddy to the rescue! But no matter how hard Trixie tries to tell him, Daddy just can't seem to understand her. Can he break the communication code in time to rescue Knuffle Bunny? Can they work as a team? Will the frustration of a difficult situation thwart their attempt? Can Daddy be the hero that Trixie needs!!!
Chock full of comedy, song, and gigantic dancing laundry, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical tells a tale of firsts: a stuffed animal's first adventure, a little girl's first words, and a Daddy's first time going solo with his little one. It is also a tale of the struggle, love, patience, and understanding that is present in every parent-child relationship.
Based on his popular 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 that can only come from a family visit to the local Laundromat.
