Stuart Little

"Everybody noticed that he was not much bigger than a mouse"

Stuart Little

adapted by Joseph Robinette from the book by E. B. White

Director: Campbell Knox

Dates: October 5 to 21, 2022

Our Junior Production is always anticipated by audiences young and old. We're excited to announce that Stuart Little will be this year's play!

Our play is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart Little who is born into an ordinary New York family. All the charm, wisdom and joy of the E.B. White original are captured in this adaptation by Joseph Robinette, who also dramatised the highly acclaimed stage version of Charlotte's Web.

The many adventures — both big and small — of Stuart Little are brought vividly to life in this story theatre presentation. The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvellous manoeuvrings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a "real people's world."

How Stuart came to be

"One spring E. B. White was travelling home from Virginia on a train and fell asleep.
He dreamt of a mouse who was fully dressed in dapper clothing with a hat and cane.
E. B. White wrote it all down.
Later, when one of his eighteen nieces and nephews wanted a story, E. B. White would read it aloud.
He named the mouse Stuart..."
