The Stinky Cheese Man
Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favorite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in this adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s quintessential children’s book of fractured fairy tales.
Everything from “Chicken Little” to “The Gingerbread Man” gets a complete makeover.
Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around.
Recommended for All Ages.
Live Performances Cancelled as per San Diego County COVID-19 Public Health Order. Rescheduled for 2022.
