Llama Llama Red Pajama

I have the exciting privilege to be a part of the world premier of the stage musical Llama Llama Red Pajama at Stages Theatre Company.  It's a clever adaptation of Dewdney's adorable childrens book that follows the plight of 6 individual baby llamas and their adventures in bedtime drama.  Each mama llama is trying to get chores done and relax a little while her baby llama doesn't want to go to sleep.

The show opened on January 13, 2012 and runs for 5 weeks.  If you are local and interested in attending, you can find information on the Stages Theater's website here.  I would say that it's geared towards children under age 8, but there's enough action and humor in it to keep most kids and adults interested too.  And if you're a mom, you can identify with a lot of it...just like in the book!

So for openning night, I made a little treat for the cast party.  This one has a special place in my heart because I get to be a part of the production.

There are 6 baby llamas and 6 mama llamas in the show and each has it's own distinct personality and interests.

There are 6 baby llama in red pajamas...

one baby llama who loves to read.

a tap dancing llama

a drama llama actress

a golfing baby llama

a soccer llama

a llama magician 

and their mamas...a gardener, a yoga instructor, a clean freak, a dancer, a trumpet player and a very pregnant llama mama.

We had a great opening and are looking forward to a very fun run!  Come out to see this book on stage!
