Timmy Willie, the Country Mouse

COMEDY FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES. Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse. The Country Mice know they’ve got to get up early and eat their fill of the Farmer’s vegetables before he loads up his cart and heads to town. Not one for gettin’ up early, Timmy Willie, a good ol’ country mouse, arrives late to the garden and discovers that the only vegetables left are the ones on the Farmer’s cart. Not wanting to go hungry, Timmy Willie helps himself to some of the vegetables, but when the Farmer and his daughter arrive, he hastily hides in the cart under a blanket. Trapped in the Farmer’s cart, Timmy Willie arrives in town, where he encounters an angry cook, a lazy cat, and the local Town Mice, who eat their vegetables cooked. Yuck! Preferring his vegetables raw, Timmy Willie hitches a ride in the Farmer’s cart back to the country and receives an unexpected visitor. Audiences of all ages will love this countrified children’s comedy!
