Pickle Chiffon Pie - a musical
Sponsored by TCU
A Towle Theater original adaptation from the Roger Bradfield children's book by the same name. Adapted for the stage by Shelley J Crosby and Jeff Casey with original music by Evan Rea.
There's a beautiful Princess, a King and a Queen, several handsome princes and of course plenty of Pickle Chiffon Pie, but this isn't your typical fairy-tale. There's no villain, no fighting and no bloodshed! Through this fun interactive musical, students grow to understand the importance of kindness and love and consideration for others, which is THE MOST WONDERFUL THING OF ALL!
"Columbia school has a 92% poverty rate and most of our student do not get to experience live theater. It was this much more meaningful that the Towle Theater brought live theater to our school. Pickle Chiffon Pie was an amazing age appropriate production that really entertained our students. They were all engaged and thrilled to be an audience for such a wonderful production. Columbia school thanks the Towle for bringing live theater to our kids." Anthony Salinas, Principal - Columbia Elementary School
"I want to tell you that I loved Pickle Chiffon Pie. I teach kindergarten and I'm always looking for positive, fun experiences for my little ones. Pickle Chiffon Pie kept my children interested and excited. It had just the right mixture of visual wonder and musical delight. It was great for all ages, but I really appreciate a production that appeals to small children. Thanks again for the thoroughly enjoying time!"
