ArtsPower’s production of

Chicken Dance

Grades PK-2

This delightful musical based on the popular book portrays the colorful story of two barnyard chickens, Marge and Lola, who are on a mission to win the barnyard talent contest’s first prize of two tickets to see the great Elvis Poultry in concert! They have to work hard to put on a performance that scores higher than that of a flock of very talented ducks, led by Mac, a menacing bully. Can Marge and Lola face their challengers, against all odds, and win the talent contest?
