THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED CHILDREN’S SHOW ‘THE DOOPLES IN THE LAND OF DOO – THE MUSICAL’ ANNOUNCES ITS RETURN TO THE NEW YORK STAGE IN DECEMBER 2015
Limited Engagement at the Renowned Cherry Lane Theater
December 16th – 20th
Dr. Lynn Hunter, an established early childhood educator and the writer and producer of the acclaimed children’s show “The Dooples in the Land of Doo – The Musical!” announced that the show will return to the New York stage for a limited engagement at the renowned Cherry Lane Theater, 38 Commerce St., NYC from December 16 – 20, 2015.
After its original sold-out run at the 2014 Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival on Broadway last March, the show generated impressive reviews. WNBC-TV called the show “A musical treat for young bookworms…and adults too!” and said the show “leaps from the page to the stage!”
Lynn collaborated with composer Charles Mandracchia, (Valentino the Musical), who is credited as Director/Composer/graphic artist and co-developer, to create this motivational, live theatrical event that makes learning fun and exciting for young children. Mr. Mandracchia has Broadway experience as an actor and singer in Grand Hotel - the Musical, South Pacific, and the New York City Opera Company.
The Dooples are a colorful, friendly group of writing tools that live in the Land of Doo and come to life in the land of Doo. Together, they share many adventures and experiences through which children empower themselves with their own imagination and personify the conviction that “to learn is to do and to do is to learn.”
“I am so excited to bring The Dooples back to New York and to welcome everyone – both those who are familiar with the Dooples books to see it in this format and those who are not familiar with the Dooples to meet them for the first time live on-stage,” said Dr. Hunter.
