I Was a Rat!

2014-2015 I Was a Rat! production background

Civic Youth Theatre Play

Just as the hit musical Wicked introduced us to a new perspective on a time-honored tale, so does the fun-filled play I was a Rat. Excitement abounds when a furry little rodent is magically transformed into a little boy. Given the name Roger, he faces a series of misadventures as he looks for his place in the strange human world around him. Through a series of mishaps he even manages to get thrown in jail! Luckily, Bob, the old cobbler and his wife, Joan, have a warm home and welcoming hearts. If only Roger can stay out of trouble long enough to enjoy them.

We have prepared a study guide, which will enhance the theatre going experience for students of all ages.
