“Nugget and Fang” Children’s Play
Bring the wee kids to see the smash hit undersea musical “Nugget and Fang” at the Nathan Manilow Theatre in Park Forest February 23, and stay at the nearby Motel 6 Chicago Hotel at Tinley Park!
The drama group ArtsPower’s colorful new undersea musical tells the story of Nugget, a minnow, and Fang, a shark, who get along swimmingly — until Nugget’s first day of minnow school. There, Nugget learns from his teacher that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks! To regain Nugget’s trust, Fang takes desperate and hilarious measures. Nothing goes as planned. Fang is moping in deep waters when he notices that Nugget and his minnow schoolmates are caught up in some big trouble (and one very big net). Holy mackerel! Can Fang save the day and prove he’s a true friend?
“Nugget and Fang” is based on the popular children’s book “Nugget and Fang: Friends Forever – or Snack Time?” by author Tammi Sauer and illustrated by Michael Slack. The musical is appropriate for kids in grades Pre-K through 3.
