Coming in May/June 2020

NAKED MOLE RAT GETS DRESSED: THE ROCK EXPERIENCE

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty surrounding it, Le Moyne has cancelled all events that were scheduled to take place on campus through at least July 31. The College made this difficult decision out of an abundance of caution to protect the safety and health of all participants.

We are sorry to say that this means that our 2020 Gifford Family Theatre production will be cancelled. We hope to see you next year for our 2021 show!


The Gifford Family Theatre at Le Moyne College is excited to announce that our 2020 May/June show will be NAKED MOLE RAT GETS DRESSED.

From MO WILLEMS, the Caldecott Honor-winning (and Emmy-winning and New York Times bestselling!) author of such books as Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Knuffle Bunny, and the wildly popular Elephant & Piggie books, comes a new musical, NAKED MOLE RAT GETS DRESSED: THE ROCK EXPERIENCE, based on his hilarious book of the same name. 

Adapted for the stage by the author, with music by Deborah Wicks LaPuma, this rockin’ musical tells the tale of Wilbur and his colony of naked mole rats. When a hat mysteriously falls into their tunnel, Wilbur decides to try it on, shocking the rest of the community.  With tail-shaking tunes, empowering messages of individuality, and classic Mo Willems humor, this musical proves it’s okay to be yourself. NAKED MOLE RAT is sure to rock audiences of all ages.


Performances begin May 22, 2020, and run through June 13. School performances begin May 18. For more information or to book a school matinee, please call (315) 445-4230 or email giffordthtr@lemoyne.edu. Tickets for weekend performances will go on sale February 15, 2020.
