From Page to Stage, The Island of Skog Is Sure to Delight Children of All Ages

For 35 years, it has been Dallas Children’s Theater’s privilege to delight and entertain your children, grandchildren and you, for that matter, through the magic of live theater. We know how life-changing a moment in a class or seeing one of these extraordinary plays can be. We see it every day. We hope that you will join us for “The Island of the Skog” on May 5th!

During “The Island of the Skog”, the best laid plans of mice and, well, Skog are upended in this lively musical adventure that navigates land and sea. When Jenny and her mice friends grow weary of ravenous cats, noisy humans, and peril on the streets, they decide a new island paradise is the order of the day. Led by the surly Captain Bouncer, the Rough-riding Rowdies think they’ve hit the jackpot until they discover that a “giant” already has dibs on their newfound home.

The Rowdies and Skog each devise a survival of the fittest plan that, in the end, only points out the flaws that come with assuming the worst and refusing to compromise. “The Island of the Skog” is adapted for the stage by Linda Daugherty; music and lyrics by Nick Martin; based on the book The Island of the Skog by Steven Kellogg.

Tickets are $23 for seniors, $28 for youth, and $30 for adults. You may purchase tickets online at https://tickets.dct.org. Don’t miss a delightfully charming and gentle story that brings to life the author’s beloved illustrations and characters!
