Young, creative and imaginative minds "will delight in TheatreworksUSA’s brand new children’s musical, 'Skippyjon Jones,' coming to Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre on May 19, with performances at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road."
Based on the book by Judy Schachner, “Skippyjon Jones” is described as "an enchanting story about a little kitten with big ears and even bigger dreams. Sometimes he pretends to be a bird, sometimes he pretends to be a llama, and sometimes he pretends to be a whale. Anything but a Siamese cat! When he finally decides he wants to be a dog, it’s not just any dog. Skippyjon transforms himself into Skippito Friskito, a chihuahua that is the greatest canine sword fighter in old Mexico – complete with mask, cape and accent! But when the local pack of chihuahuas is terrorized by the gigantic bee, will Skippyjon be a 'fraidy-cat' or the top dog?"
