Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Children’s Theatre of Charlotte – June 17, 18, and 19 at 10:30am

Mike Mulligan and his beloved Steam Shovel, Mary Anne, have been together for many years. But times have changed and newer, fancier shovels have become fashionable, leaving them out of work and down to their last dime. Their final hope lies in the little town of Popperville, which needs a basement dug for its new City Hall.

The story of hard work, determination and friendship comes to life in this delightful musical adaptation, where we learn that the newest, biggest or most expensive isn’t necessarily the best! Children’s Theatre of Charlotte (formerly known as Tarradiddle Players) has grown to become one of the top theatre and education organizations for young people in the United States.

Tickets are $5 and may be purchased in advance at the ticket office at RIFP or the day of the event. Ages 5 and under are free. 

This production is sponsored, in part, by Friends of Elizabeth II.

An original musical score by Charlotte composer John Alexander will have you fighting the urge to mambo in the aisles.   A daz­zling array of rod puppets and shadow puppets all join in the quest to find the foot that fits a simple sandal.  This show is sure to delight the salsa fan in everyone!  Pass the nachos, please!
