About the show:
When an angry child defies his mother, destroys his room, and tortures his animal friends instead of finishing his homework, the broken furniture, wounded pets, and even disgruntled Mr. Arithmetic himself decide to teach the boy a lesson! The twenty characters in this whimsical opera are imaginatively portrayed here by just five singers. Best of all, children (and the young-at-heart) in the audience can join the performance as a sing-a-long chorus. With the aid of puppets and a design inspired by American pop-art icon Roy Lichtenstein, this production will surely delight children, parents and teachers alike.
