A dancing cat, a howling dog, and a vampire bunny. The perfect pet combination for any family. It’s a dark and stormy night and Chester (the family cat) and Harold (the family dog) sit waiting for their owners to return home from the movies. Chester and Harold are more than just pets, they’re good friends too. When the Monroes finally get home, they come bearing a surprise: they’ve found a bunny in the movie theater. But this is no ordinary rabbit… this is the extraordinary Bunnicula. When the family’s produce starts losing its juice, Chester thinks he knows what’s causing the fantastic phenomenon. Bunnicula is a vampire! Or maybe Chester’s imagination is getting the better of him. Singing and dancing their way through this hilarious mystery, the furry friends find room in their hearts, and in their home, for one very unique bunny.
“This semi-musical is a fanciful, non-scary Halloween treat for the kid inside all of us.” –Talkin’ Broadway
“Readers of all ages can rejoice in Seattle Children’s Theatre world premiere of Bunnicula, a clever, careful stage rendering of Deborah and James Howe’s much-beloved classic.” – Seattle Times
