Busytown is always buzzing with activity. But what do people do all day? That’s where Huckle Cat comes in—he’ll take us on a tour of his great neighborhood. And there is so much to see and do, so many wonderful friends to visit. Huckle shows us how Farmer Pig and Grocer Cat work together to bring food to the town. Construction Worker and his crew build new houses, and Firechief and the gang keep them safe. Isn’t it wonderful how everyone works together to keep Busytown busy?

“There is much physical humor in “Busytown” and the production is charming. It is just good theatre.” -Tacoma Weekly
“This world premier radiates with simple, silly joy while bringing to life the impossible physics and interspecies harmony of Richard Scarry’s world.” -Seattle Weekly
“Through vibrant singing and dancing, and amazing puppetry, Scarry’s imaginative world is brought to life and allows us to think about even the smallest of daily exchanges as interesting adventures. It promotes a very simple message: Everyone in Busytown relies on one another, and every job has an important role.” -Queen Anne News
