Help bring a heartwarming classic to the stage!

About the Project

Bring to life a beloved story about the meaning of community.

Next season, the same creative team who brought you the much acclaimed Blueberries for Sal in 2018—Sandra Eskin, Michael J. Bobbitt, and William Yanesh—will present a second Caldecott-award winning children’s book by Robert McCloskey. Celebrating its 80th anniversary next year, Make Way for Ducklings is a touching story of a community that comes together to protect and nurture a family of ducklings, making sure they have a place to call home.

By giving today, you get the incredible opportunity to watch the creation of this brand new musical for family theatre!

Your support will directly help fund the adaptation of the book to the stage, including writing, workshops, and preparation by actors, designers, and artists. Only through your generosity can we continue to bring inspiring new works like Make Way for Ducklings to family audiences like yours.


When you support bringing this wonderful story to the stage, you help create memories for families for years to come.

Please give generously!
