John Waldron Arts Center Auditorium

June 18-27, 2010

John Waldron Arts Center

The Cardinal Stage Company’s ‘Cardinal for Kids’ series offers If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, based on the book by Laura Joffe Numeroff. It’s a thoroughly delightful and interactive production at the John Waldron Arts Center.

The Cast

McCarry Reynolds is great fun as the boy who becomes just a bit too friendly and helpful to the demanding mouse. Mike Price manages to keep the audience’s sympathy as the mouse despite his demanding ways – he quite literally swings from the chandelier in his dramatic efforts. Stacy Brewer appears dressed as a copy of the mouse for a very funny take on the Marx Brothers‘ old mirror gag.

Behind The Scenes

Sarah Sandberg’s set for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is colorful and imaginative. Her crazily-sized props include a glass of milk the size of a bucket with a straw that’s about six feet long, and a set a crayons the size of fence posts.

Composer and musician Tom Berich matches his array of percussion instruments to the action for continuity and accent throughout.

George Walker

George Walker was born in Winchester, Virginia, and raised in Owl’s Head, Maine, and Valhalla, New York. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he came to Bloomington in 1966 and completed an M.A.T. degree in English at Indiana University. George began announcing for WFIU in 1967. Currently, along with regularly hosting classical music shows, he interviews artists in a wide variety of areas and reviews plays and operas. He’s the proud father of grown sons Ben Walker (and his wife Elise Katzif Walker) and Aaron Walker. In his time away from WFIU, George enjoys an active life with wife Carolyn Lipson-Walker, singing, reading, exercising and playing guitar.
