Based on the multi-award winning book by Danny Schnitzlein, this musical tells the funny and poignant story of a young boy who doesn’t want to eat his peas. When a crafty monster appears underneath his kitchen table, the boy is ready to make a deal. If the monster eats his peas, the boy will give him any of his possessions. First, it’s his soccer ball – then, his bike. But, when the monster raises the stakes, will the boy refuse him and make the difficult decision to face his own fears? Children and adults alike will be entertained and engaged by this wonderful tale about the value of will power.
