Cardinal Stage Company brings the famous cookie-loving, house-wrecking mouse to life on stage at the Waldron Auditorium June 18th-27th.

A Shelf of follow ups

When Laura Numeroff wrote If You Give a Mouse a Cookie she was already a successful author with nine books to her credit. But none of her books were as successful. If You Give…was great hit and it has spawned a whole shelf of If You Give… follow ups.

Getting physical

The Cardinal Stage Company presents a play based on the book Friday June 18 through Sunday June 27 at the John Waldron Arts Center. Bloomington theatre veteran Mike Price plays the part of the demanding mouse. Cardinal fans may remember him from the children’s hit “A Day with Frog and Toad” along with his more serious roles. “I was actually quite happy when we decided to do this show, because it offers a lot of opportunities for physical acting and I really enjoy that part of theatre.”

Boyish, but experienced

Partnering with Price is recent high school grad, McGarry Reynolds. Reynolds describes himself as a real theatre fan. “I’ve been in and around Bloomington theatre shows, since fourth grade. I’ve acted and done technical things as well. I’ve run sound for Cardinal and in fact I was the stage manager for their recent production of Boom. My role in If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is of the little boy who tries to politely deal with the ever more demanding rodent that Mike plays.”

George Walker

After completing an M.A.T. degree in English at Indiana University, George Walker began announcing for WFIU in 1967. Along with regularly hosting classical music shows, he interviews artists and reviews plays and operas.
