Lyle the Crocodile
Lyle is the story of a friendly crocodile who turns up in a bathtub in an apartment in New York City’s Upper East Side. Lyle becomes good friends with the folks in the building, except for Mr. Grumps, who hates Lyle, parades, people, and pretty much everything. However, when Lyle rescues Mr. Grumps and his cat Loretta from a fire, Mr. Grumps has to apologize for the way he’s treated Lyle. In the end, Lyle helps those around him learn that they should not judge other by how different they appear to be, but to love people (and crocodiles) for what they are.

“King’s adaptation creates a theatrical version that is true to the spirit of the books, yet adds an extra dimension of camp and humor that gives the production a distinctive stylistic signature.” –St. Paul Pioneer Press
