Shai the elf, a newly-appointed yard elf, tries her best to clean up a human’s butterfly garden. But when she accidentally pulls up a milkweed (it has the word "weed" in its name after all), she becomes responsible for a butterfly egg and its need for a new home! With the help of a feisty fairy, Shai works to protect and nurture her new caterpillar friend through metamorphosis and onto a high-flying happy ending. This new musical comedy is the latest work from award-winning songwriter Lena Pennino-Smith, the same artist behind such LICM favorites as “Happy as Clams: The Musical” and “The Princess Frog.” With a 90 percent decline in monarch butterfly populations over the last 20 years, this musical encourages audiences of all ages to plant beautiful milkweed: everything our local butterflies need to transform from adorable eggs to soaring sensations! Ages 3-10.
