Description: This stage adaptation about a mouse born into an ordinary New York City family keeps all of the charm, wisdom, and joy of E.B. White’s original book. The many adventures—both big and small—of Stuart Little are brought to life as an ensemble cast plays many roles in the adventures of the mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a “real people’s world.”
