(NETCONG, NJ) -- The Growing Stage, The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey, is presenting their final mainstage production of the 2022-2023 season, Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus! The Musical! weekends through May 21. This production is even more fun than staying up late and having a hot dog party!  It’s not easy being the Pigeon-you never get to do ANYTHING! But when the Bus Driver has a crisis that threatens to make her passengers (gasp!) late, maybe that wily bird CAN do something. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

It is based on the book Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus by Mo Willems, published by Hyperion Books for Children with a script by Mo Willems and Mr. Warburton, lyrics by Mo Willems, music by Deborah Wicks La Puma and dramaturgy by Megan Alrutz. This production is under the direction of Lori B. Lawrence, TGS’s Director of Educational Programming with musical direction by Laura Petrie and choreography by Cari Sanchez.

Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus! The Musical! features the talents of 6 professional performers in this production: Tyler Miranda (The Lightning Thief) of Fort Montgomery, NY as The Pigeon; Meg Foley (The Lightning Thief) of Livingston, NJ as Bus Driver; Dan Campos (Babes in Toyland) of Kearny, NJ as Business Man/Others; Ellie Kallay (TGS Debut!) of Bloomfield, NJ as Duckling/Others; Niall Ng (Mr. Popper’s Penguins) of Maplewood, NJ as Teenager/Others and Julianna Belles (TGS Debut) of Morris Plains, NJ as Old Lady/Others.
