Based on the award-winning children's book by Kimberly Foster, the new musical for young audiences features music by John Fleming and original author Foster. Press notes state, "It's a magic day for Tina Talkington and her animals! Tina has cast a magic spell to make her stuffed animals talk! But when the spell makes Owl, Fox and Beaver spring to life, it also turns her little brother into a giant baby. And worse, Tina herself has turned into a Dolphin, stuck in a tree!"
The cast for the Off-Broadway production includes Stephanie Acevedo, Zack Friedman, Evan Greene and Dan Ajl Kitrosser. Paul Urcioli directs.
A Dolphin Up a Tree will begin performances at Off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre Sept. 29. The production is 45 minutes long and designed for children ages 2-8.
