Based on the beloved books of Richard Scarry and adapted by Kevin Kling, this zany musical shares a day in the life of Huckle Cat, Lowly Worm, Betsy Bear, and other favorite characters.   The catchy score with music by Michael Koerner and lyrics by Kevin Kling and Michael Koerner, will dazzle patrons of all ages.

Under the direction of Jan Guarino, the show features costumes and hand made puppets by local artisan and designer, Lynn West.   The whimsical set, designed by Chase Kniffen, Associate Artistic Director at Virginia Rep, includes favorite Busytown spots and a giant pickle car. The cast includes Jan Guarino, last seen as Mrs. Primm in Virginia Rep’s production of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile, as the lovable Betsy Bear, Dan Cimo as Huckle Cat, Allison Gillman as Train the Dog.

Rounding out the cast are three of Virginia Rep’s seasoned touring actors, PJ Freebourn, Mike Brown, and Jessi Johnson. Each cast member will play multiple important roles.

  • The show will be performed in two acts and will last about one hour and ten minutes.
  • Busytown will be enjoyed most by children three years and older with plenty of humor to entertain older kids and adults.

Virginia Rep is thrilled to offer Busytown Donuts from Dixie Donuts as special treats before and after the show.
