About the Musical

Based on the multi award-winning picture book written by Danny Schnitzlein and illustrated by Matthew Faulkner, ArtsPower’s musical tells the funny and poignant story of Danny, a young boy who doesn’t want to eat his peas. When a crafty monster appears from underneath his kitchen table and offers to eat those pesky peas, Danny is ready to make a deal with the monster. 

In return for eating Danny’s peas each night, the monster wants one of Danny’s possessions. The first night, it’s Danny’s soccer ball. The next night, it’s his bike. But, when the monster raises the stakes, will Danny make the right decision to refuse the monster? 

ArtsPower’s wonderfully-crafted, fast-paced musical tells a relatable tale of facing our fears, developing character, and overcoming obstacles.
