News From Imagination Stage

ASL Interpreted Musical: Lyle the Crocodile

Imagination Stage is proud to announce its ASL interpreted date for Lyle the Crocodile on Sunday, December 8, 2013  at 4:00 pm.  Lyle the Crocodile is a snappy new musical based on the Bernard Waber series of children’s books.  For more information about the performance or ordering tickets, please see below.

Lyle the Crocodile 
When the Primm family moves into their New York City apartment, they are quite surprised to find a crocodile in their bathtub! But Lyle is a rather extraordinary crocodile and quickly becomes part of the family. Unfortunately, a nasty neighbor, Mr. Grumps, has it out for the reptile. He thinks poor Lyle is unfit for the neighborhood simply because he’s different. After a parade, a trip to the department store, and a stint in the zoo, Lyle saves the day and earns his place as a beloved friend and neighbor.

Best for ages 4-12

Based on Lyle, Lyle Crocodile and The House on East 88th Street by Bernard Waber; Adapted by Kevin Kling; Music by Richard Gray; Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer.
