Where are those dogs going? To a dog party. A frolicking musical dog party with cars, hats and even a wild game of ball as this hilarious visual spectacle sneaks in some important lessons about life between innings.

Penguin has the soul of an eagle and is ready to live on the wind. But he wasn’t built to soar, as the other birds constantly remind him. His spirit won’t be grounded. With some friends of a feather, and a little help on the technical parts, Penguin follows his dreams to flip, flap, fly!

Dear first-grade journal: This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It’s got loads of funny songs, and it’s based on a bunch of books this lady, Barbara Park, wrote about me and the things I do in first grade.
Love, Junie B.

Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) and Carole King (Tapestry) brought Rosie and the Nutshell Kids (Pierre, Alligator, Johnny and Chef Jeff [aka “Chicken Soup”]) to life in this classic musical adventure. It was a Broadway musical as well as an animation sensation. Now, ECU Storybook Theatre thoughtfully recreates the magic. What mayhem may ensue as Rosie and her friends use creativity to avert the boredom of a hot summer day in the city?

But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can save the day. (This title is an added attraction and not available as a part of the Family Fare series bundle.)
