Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
April 5th, 2012
Omaha, NE – What happens when two cows, a hen, and a duck get cold in a barn? Well, the Omaha Roseâ€™s childrenâ€™s play Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type has an answer.
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 storyâ€™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, â€œwe talk about starting an uprising or rebellion against farmer Brownâ€¦But, one of the cows, the one whoâ€™s kind of the mother character, she convinces us that violence is not the right wayâ€¦to get what you want,â€ Kaus said.
Instead, â€œyou need to find a peaceful way to communicate with farmer Brown or whoever youâ€™re talking about,â€ she said.
Amanda Waldron plays the duck. She says she loves how children usually respond to the story.
â€œThey love it, and itâ€™s really such a huge thing for themâ€¦I love seeing them so happy and raving about the showâ€¦thatâ€™s really fun to see,â€ Waldron said.
Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is now running through April 15 at the Rose Theater in downtown Omaha.
