A new children’s play is about to open at Imagination Stage in Bethesda. “Bunnicula,” will run from September 25 – October 31, perfect timing to embrace the Halloween spirit. Here’s a description of the production:
“It is a dark and stormy night at the Monroe house when family pets Harold the dog and Chester the cat are confronted by a mysterious new addition to the family: small, furry with long ears and fangs. Bunnicula! Soon the carrots in the kitchen are left drained of juice and with suspicious teeth-marks. First the veggies, next…the Monroes? Chester and Harold try to thwart the vampire bunny before it is too late! This musical adaptation of the book is a hugely imaginative tale full of belly laughs and suspense.”
Performances are scheduled for every Saturday and Sunday at 1:30pm and 4pm, as well as select Saturdays at 11am. There is one Friday 10:30am show on October 15, when MDPS is out. It looks like seats are still available for all shows, but filling up fast, so get yours soon!
The show is recommended for kids ages 4 and up.
