Looking for a cast of 5 Diverse, Versatile Actor/Singers of all ethnicities, who move, to portray a community of Mice, in this musical adaptation based on the beloved book by Leo Lionni.

The mice are getting ready for winter, and each has a role to play – even Frederick, who seems to not be helping, until his friends realize that he’s an artist, and is soaking in the colors and the sounds of the meadow, which he’ll conjure up to get the community through the darkest days, until Spring comes again.

The music is an integral part of the show, and has a roots/blue grass style, which will be played by a live band. We’d love the cast to join in, so if you play a musical instrument (banjo, fiddle, guitar, harmonica, etc.), that would be a bonus!

The show is geared for our youngest audiences – ages 4 and up, but MainStreet shows never talk down to the audience – the opposite – we believe that children are inherently imaginative and smart. The sophisticated production values and the universal message about community will make the show appealing for all ages!
