Be whisked away on a magical, family friendly adventure with the award-winning Squirrel Stole My Underpants when its international tour stops at The Strong on Friday, March 31. The whimsical performance, which was awarded a Jim Henson Foundation family project grant in 2013, combines puppetry, dance, original music, and acrobatics to explore themes of childhood. The critically acclaimed show has been hailed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as “…very likely to steal your heart…” and follows the story of Sylvia, a lonely girl who chases a squirrel into strange lands that come alive with scale, color, and texture. Along the way she meets new friends and magical creatures brought to life through puppetry and dance.

Tickets are required for all guests, regardless of age. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Seating for the concert is limited. Tickets are nonrefundable.
