Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel

Jun 6–24
Barter Stage II

A musical based on the book by Virginia Lee Burton/adapted by Eric Lane Barnes

Mike Mulligan and his beloved steam shovel, Mary Anne, have been together for many years. But now newer, fancier shovels have taken all the work, leaving Mike and Mary Anne in the dust. Their only hope lies in the little town of Popperville, which needs a basement dug for its new City Hall. The story of hard work, determination and friendship comes to life in this charming musical adaptation, where we learn that the newest, biggest or most expensive isn’t necessarily the best.
