Chasing Mother Goose - Children's Theatre of Hampton Roads
Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center – The venerable poet Mother Goose currently presides over a library that houses every piece of literature in existence. Day and night she does her best to keep order and ensure peace among the shelves. But even under her no-nonsense watch, the books have a tendency to get out of hand. On a seemingly quiet night, the White Rabbit from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland shows up (with the mad Hatter close behind), and when a copy of Moby Dick is returned with pages missing, Captain Ahab arrives to wreak vengeance on the creature that took his leg. Only, the pages that say what type of creature are, well, missing. Which poses a problem for our beloved characters. Mother Goose and the Hatter have no choice but to comb the other books for Ahab’s missing pages and put him back together before the library opens in the morning. On their way they’ll traverse such works as Treasure Island, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and many more, all the while fleeing the amnesic Ahab on his misguided mission.
