Event Description

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia (Canada)

Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare loves Little Nutbrown as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. And so it continues… Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia adapts Guess How Much I Love You, the award-winning classic from author Sam McBratney and illustrator Anita Jeram.

In I Love My Little Storybook, an eager little bunny lies on the grass, opens his book, and within moments, the story he’s reading comes alive in fascinating detail. From illustrator Anita Jeram comes this endearing celebration of the joy of reading!

Guess How Much I Love You & I Love My Little Storybook, adapted, directed and designed by Jim Morrow with music by Steven Naylor and narrated by Beau Bridges.

Playhouse Square is pleased to present this special sensory-friendly matinee for guests on the autism spectrum and their families, as well as those with sensory challenges or developmental disabilities. Children, families and groups requiring a sensory-friendly environment are most welcome.
