Everyone has an important job to do in the hustle and bustle of Richard Scarry’s Busytown. Grocer Cat sells fresh food, Alfalfa and Pig run a farm, and Dr. Lion and his nurse make sure everyone is healthy. There will be lots of giggles and squeals as our youngest audience members meet the citizens of this imaginative world and learn what it means to be part of a community.
