Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience

Based on the book Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems
Script and Lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma

March 22–May 13, 2018

“They are a little bit rat. They are a little bit mole. They are all naked.”

Well, except Wilbur, that is. Emmy winner and Caldecott honoree Mo Willems is back, once again teaming up with Deborah Wicks La Puma, composer of Elephant and Piggie’s “We are in a Play!”, for this world premiere, rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza. Grab your friends and watch as Wilbur, a clothes-loving mole rat with exceptional style, navigates the pressure to be just like everyone else. With tail-shaking tunes, empowering messages of individuality, and classic Mo Willems humor, this musical is sure to rock audiences of all ages.
