About the Show: The award-winning Theatreworks USA brings this popular children’s book to the stage as a live musical. When Farmer Brown’s granddaughter, Jenny, comes for a visit, he declares the farm a "tech-free zone." He confiscates her laptop, stashing it in the cold barn. The shivering cows use Jenny’s computer to type a list of funny demands. So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. "Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!" Farmer Brown cries. Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in this hilarious and fun musical about negotiation and compromise.
