Add to Calendar 15-09-2012 15-09-2012 15 'Little Miss Muffet's Monster-Sitting Service' City Parks Foundation premieres a whimsical new theater piece for the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre based on the beloved nursery rhyme "Little Miss Muffet." "Little Miss Muffet's Monster-Sitting Service" tells the story of Molly Muffet (the great-great-great-great granddaughter of the original Little Miss Muffet) and what happens when she ends up home alone while her parents leave for a high school reunion. Molly's grandfather is called in to babysit but gets stranded by a snowstorm in Alaska. As a last resort, he calls in an old family friend, Aloisius Albrecht Alviss Spider (Al for short), the original spider from the famed nursery rhyme. Molly and Al quickly become friends and hatch a plan to start a baby-sitting service for baby monsters while her parents are away. As the night progresses and baby monsters get dropped off, Molly and Al receive news that the storm of the century is heading their way. Molly, Al, and the babies bunker down for what promises to be a long night filled with music, song, dance, and numerous surprises. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=99271 Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre true DD/MM/YYYY
