Show Description

Based on the award-winning picture book by Danny Schnitzlein. 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 magically appears from the kitchen garbage can and offers to eat those pesky peas, Danny is ready to make a deal.

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 and refuse the monster’s demands? ArtsPower’s wonderfully-crafted, fast-paced musical tells a relatable tale of facing our fears and finding the courage to overcome obstacles.


Access the show and its activities anytime all summer long.
