ABOUT THE SHOW:
"Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!" Farmer Brown cries. When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declared the farm a "tech-free zone." He confiscates her laptop in the cold barn along with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. "No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!" So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

LORETTA: Seeking a male-identifying actor to play a slow-moving, blue-collar-type cow, LORETTA. Keeps head down to avoid conflict, but when pushed to the wall, LORETTA stands up and bellows with a power that blows everybody away. BARITONE. BIPOC+/GLOBAL MAJORITY PERFORMERS ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT.
FARMER BROWN: Character is male. FARMER BROWN is Jenny's grandfather, an old fashioned mid-western farmer. Loves things exactly the way they are and the way they’ve always been. Also plays a chicken with a very short fuse. BARI-TENOR. BIPOC+/GLOBAL MAJORITY PERFORMERS ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT.
