    Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type! Not only that, but they’re cold out there in the barn – and they’re smart, too… When Farmer Brown starts getting typed notes from the cows about wanting electric blankets – he dismisses them out of hand. But when the animals go on strike, and he can’t get any milk or even any eggs from his hen, he’s got to reconsider!

    Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type is a marvelously delightful story about teamwork, ingenuity, and striving for what you believe!

    About Author Doreen Cronin
    Doreen Cronin was an attorney in New York when her first book, Click, Clack Moo: Cows That Type, was accepted for publication. Eventually she left the law altogether to write fulltime for children. After Click, Clack’s huge success, she again partnered with illustrator Betsy Lewin to write Giggle, Giggle, Quack. Her other works include Diary of a Worm, Duck for President, and Dooby, Dooby Moo, to name a few.

    Ms. Cronin was born in Queens and raised on Long Island. She graduated from Pennsylvania State University and St. John’s University School of Law. She currently resides in New York with her family.

    Jim Grote has been a member of the artistic ensemble of Lifeline Theatre since 1999. Mr. Grote became a playwright for Lifeline in 2000 with his adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ The Silver Chair, which was named the best family show of that year by the Chicago Tribune. His other adaptations for the MainStage include The Piano Tuner (After Dark Award: Outstanding Production) and A Long Way from Chicago.

    For KidSeries at Lifeline, Mr. Grote has adapted Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type and Giggle, Giggle, Quack (featuring music by George Howe), as well as Duck for President, all based on the book series by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin. He also adapted The Dirty Cowboy and Deep in the Jungle for Lifeline’s KidSeries.

    PARKING UPDATE AT CHELSEA MARKET (MAY 2014):

    As you may or may not be aware, Main Street Theater's Chelsea Market activities will move to the MATCH once it's built.  The MATCH is the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston and will break ground on May 7, 2014.  We hope to be able to move out of Chelsea market into our new home at the MATCH in the fall of 2015.  There's more information on the MATCH here: http://www.matchouston.org/

    IN THE MEANTIME:
    You may have noticed that Chelsea Market has recently lost half its parking lot in a sale to a developer. In addition, our lease on that space has expired, BUT we are being allowed to stay through our 2015 season, providing we can find solutions to some of the parking problems our activities create. This affects all our programs: the showcases on Saturday mornings, our schoolday performances, and our weekend family matinees.  We are very grateful to be able to stay at Chelsea until the MATCH is ready.  

    We want to do everything we can to help our fellow tenants and our landlord, so:

    • For SATURDAY PERFORMANCES, we have received permission from the Joy School across Chelsea Blvd. to use their parking lot.  If it is convenient for you, please check this lot first for parking and walk across the courtyard to the theater. 
    • There's also quite a bit of on-street parking on Chelsea Blvd.     

     We hope this will also make it easier for YOU as you won't have to deal with the stress of a full Chelsea Market parking lot!
