Coterie Theatre artists read from David Ezra Stein’s best-selling Caldecott Honor Book about a little red chicken who can’t stop herself from interrupting her bedtime stories, altering the tales to save the characters from their missteps. But when it’s her turn to tell a tale, will her yawning Papa make it to the end without his own interruption?

Young audience members can “jump into the story,” adding their own improvisation. Appropriate for all ages.
