Pippi Longstocking lives with her monkey in a wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she’s not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she’s attempting to learn the “pluttification” tables at school; fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus; or playing tag with police officers. Pippi’s good-natured hijinks cause as much trouble as fun in this bubbly, slapstick show for the whole family! This show is a Creating Arts Company pint sized play and is a one hour long interactive-cinematic-theatrical-experience that is recommended for ages 3 and up and fun for the entire family.
