"The Musical"


Illustration by Marla Frazee

The Talented Clementine, is a brand-new, fully staged musical adapted from Sara Pennypacker’s multiple award-winning Clementine series of children’s books. The story follows the misadventures of Clementine, an eccentric and loveable, yet unintentionally devious, eight-year-old through third grade, as she struggles to discover her talent in time for the school talent show.

As the night of Talent Palooza draws closer, Clementine grows desperate for an act, any act, she can perform. But the unexpected talent she demonstrates at the show surprises everyone–most of all herself.

The project is a collaboration between Encore Stage and Studio and Kid Pan Alley and features songs written with elementary school children—providing an humorous and authentic glimpse into the world from their own unique perspective.
