Directed by Kathryn Walsh

Trixie, her father, and her favorite stuffed bunny set off on a trip to the Laundromat. The trip brings wonder, excitement and joy to the lively toddler until she realizes that she has left her Knuffle Bunny back at the laundromat. Once Trixie finally makes her father understand the emergency, the two heroes set off an epic adventure to save her beloved Knuffle Bunny from the clutches of the mighty washing machine!

Based on the beloved Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, KNUFFLE BUNNY: A CAUTIONARY MUSICAL is filled with adventure, songs, and dancing laundry! Six-time Emmy Award winner, Mo Willems, teams up with Grammy Award-winning composer, Michael Silversher, to create this heart-warming and hilarious musical.
