Five actors will perform as cows, a hen, a duck, and farmer Brown, on the main stage at the Rose Theater, in the play Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. It all starts when several cows and chickens get cold in a barn. Before long, they decide to demand electric blankets from the story’s grumpy farmer, named Brown, by using a typewriter. Sara Kaus stars as the hen in the play. She said there are several moral lessons hidden within the main storyline.

In the play, “we talk about starting an uprising or rebellion against farmer Brown…But, one of the cows, the one who’s kind of the mother character, she convinces us that violence is not the right way…to get what you want,” Kaus said.

Instead, “you need to find a peaceful way to communicate with farmer Brown or whoever you’re talking about,” she said.

Amanda Waldron plays the duck. She says she loves how children usually respond to the story.

“They love it, and it’s really such a huge thing for them…I love seeing them so happy and raving about the show…that’s really fun to see,” Waldron said.

Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is now running through April 15 at the Rose Theater in downtown Omaha.
