Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type

Adapted by James E. Grote
Music by George Howe
Lyrics by James E. Grote and George Howe
From the book by Doreen Cronin, Illustrations by Betsy Lewin

“Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!”

This musical comedy is based on the children’s book by Doreen Cronin, the story of barnyard animals who feel that their barn is too cold for comfort. They attempt to communicate with Farmer Brown, but he can’t understand cow’s moos, the cackle of chickens or the quack of the duck. They work all day to provide milk and eggs, but when their request for electric blankets to warm the drafty barn is ignored, action must be taken. Join the Cows, Hen, and Duck — and their trusty typewriter— as they engage in peaceful protest to improve their working conditions.

Anne & Emmett

Written by Janet Langhart Cohen

“Anne and Emmett” meet in Memory to inspire change today.

Anne & Emmett is a history lesson about the importance of tolerance, compassion, and justice, to be acted out on stage, acted on in life.  The play brings the two slain teenagers together in a meeting beyond the grave, where they recount the cruelty and racial hatred that led to their deaths. Through an imaginary conversation between two iconic figures of civil rights history, Anne & Emmett examines the innocence of children thrust into the most horrific of circumstances. Though worlds away from each other, both Anne Frank and Emmett Till were just 14 years old when they fell victim to hate and intolerance.  Together both Anne and Emmett speak as teenagers do. Although isolated from the violence of their lives in the place called Memory, both discuss the injustices they faced and the actions that lead to their horrible ends recognizing the similarities between them. The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, “Anne and Emmett should be seen in every school in America!”
