Penn Presents 2008-2009 season of children’s entertainment begins with two smart, fully-staged, curriculum-connected musicals this week at the Zellerbach Theatre in the Annenberg Center.

From Dumbo to 101 Dalmations, Bill Peet was one of Walt Disney’s greatest storymen, responsible for illustrating, storyboarding and producing many of the greatest animated features of all time. The musical The Ant and the Elephant brings Peet’s unique version of this Aesop fable to life on stage.
Written by Jeff Brown and illustrated by Scott Nash, the Flat Stanley books are a phenomenon unequaled in their genre.
Tickets are $10 and are available at the Annenberg Center Box Office.
