TWU DRAMA PRESENTS ‘IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE’

The Texas Woman’s University drama program concludes its Children’s Theater Summer Series with “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.” Performances are slated July 16-17 and 23-24 on the Denton campus.

Friday performances are at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., and Saturday performances are at 2 and 7 p.m. All performances will take place in the Redbud Theater Complex, located on the northwest side of historic Hubbard Hall on TWU’s Denton campus. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and children. Reservations are strongly recommended. To reserve tickets online or for more information, visit http://www.twu.edu/drama/ or call the TWU Box Office at (940) 898-2020.

The play, adapted from the book by Laura Numeroff, follows the story of a young boy who wonders what will happen if you give a mouse a cookie. He will want a glass of milk, of course! As the play unfolds, the mouse’s demands get larger and larger, running his young host ragged. The action takes place on a colorful, oversized set designed in conjunction with North Central Texas College.

Graduate student Jennie Patton is the producer for the Children’s Theater Summer series. Cristin Thomas will direct “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie.” The cast features Mallory Bryant-Gawne, Cassie Henderson and Joanna Wesson. Costume design is by Alex Rodriguez; lighting design by Jonathan Felt; and sound design by Stanton Brasher. Cassie Henderson is the prop designer, and makeup design is by Brittany Fowler. Kristen Brasher is the stage manager for the production.
