|Description||A little red truck pulls into our town with everything it takes to mount a full-scale musical production... except the cast. That's where the children of our community come in. The Missoula Children's Theatre proudly presents an original musical adaptation of Robinson Crusoe teaches the lesson that reading invites more than observation. Unlike TV and movies, which provide every detail, a book allows the reader the luxury and the joy of imagination. We arrive on Robinson's island years after he and his sole companion, a goat named Wilson, are shipwrecked. We find that the island has turned into a tourist destination centered around a lovable singing leopard, a tribe of natives known for their colorful coifs, Friday's Seaside Resort and, of course, the legend of Robinson Crusoe. In flashback, his story comes to life beginning with the shipwreck that marooned him and Wilson on the island. The entire population of the island, including a herd of goats, an all-animal band, and the inevitable hula-dancing chameleons, discover that our differences need not stand in the way of our friendships.
