Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

by Bay Area Children’s Theatre

Grades PK-3

Bedtime is fast approaching and this team of construction vehicles can’t seem to get to sleep. But Crane Truck is getting cranky, Cement Mixer takes too long with bath time, and Dump Truck just isn’t sleepy! Excavator and Bulldozer find that preparing for bed is a job in itself! Will they ever get some shut-eye before tomorrow’s day of work? A world premiere musical based on the best-selling book!
