Based on Michael Hall’s ‘Red: A Crayon Story’
Book by Ben Thorpe
Music and Lyrics by John Burke
A blue crayon, mislabeled as Red, is having a tough time.
As hard as Red tries, his drawings look strange… and everyone is noticing. His mother and sibling want to help, his teachers and coach push him in different directions, and his fellow crayon-students think he’s just plain weird. Red will try anything in order to be normal.
Then, Red makes a new friend who opens his eyes to the possibility that what others see as strange could possibly be what makes him special.
Based on Michael Hall’s children’s book, this family musical is about community, self-discovery, and being true to one’s self.
