This weekend we visited The Magik Theatre for their season opener. The Magik Theatre, located in downtown San Antonio, strives to bring children’s literature to life. Duck for President, written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin, is the latest book that they have brought to the stage. The play is adapted by James E. Grote. Music and lyrics are by George Howe and it is directed by Frances Limoncelli.
The boys and I truly enjoyed this play. We’ve been to several of the plays at The Magik Theatre and Duck for President tops my favorites.
The play features Farmer Brown and his animals, Pig, Hen, Cow, and of course, Duck. We watch as Duck decides to run for Farmer, Governor, and President. Each time he thinks that being in charge is going to be a lot of fun but then realizes the jobs are actually hard.
The show was cute and funny and the boys had fun quacking along. There are plenty of songs and jokes incorporated into the play and we were smiling and laughing throughout the entire show.
The show is about an hour long and when it’s over the actors line up by the theatre entrance to sign autographs and take pictures.
Connor and JT Say:
I’m putting both boys together because JT told me that he was going to say exactly what Connor said.
“I loved Duck for President! I love Farmer Brown and Duck! The play was really funny. Duck for President and Flat Stanley are my favorites so far.”
Duck for President will be running at the Magik Theatre through November 6, 2016. We highly recommend checking out this fun show. We’ve also been provided with a gift certificate good for 4 tickets to any showing of Duck for President for one lucky reader!
