Summer 2016: My Plate —the Musical

A Minnetrista Original

June 6, 2016–June 4, 2017
Grades K–5

Running from the planet-gobbling alien called GLUT, Captain gNosh of the USS MYPLATE II crash lands his spacecraft on a nearby planet due to a fuel shortage. Fortunately for him, gNosh finds himself in the middle of an Inter-Galactic Farmers Market run by the friendly aliens known as the Nom Noms.  Quickly, gNosh must learn how to fuel up his food powered ship with a balanced nutritional meal if he has any hopes of dueling the GLUT and saving earth from total destruction.  Allow your students to dance, sing, and show gNosh how to balance a healthy plate in this highly interactive theatre production.

Spectacular sets, interesting characters, and charming puppets engage children and families as their experience this enchanting adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Performances are 45 minutes—followed by a 15-minute Q & A session with the actors.
