Based on The New York Times best-selling children’s book series by author Annie Barrows and Illustrator Sophie Blackall, Ivy + Bean: The Musical is the story of an unexpected friendship between two very different second graders.
The moment they saw each other, Bean and Ivy knew they would never like each other. Bean is loud and wild and goofy. Ivy is quiet and full of ideas. But when Bean plays a joke on her sister, and needs a place to hide, Ivy comes to the rescue. When the two become a team, there’s mischief and laughter at every turn—along with lessons to be learned about the challenges and joy of family, friendship, and love.
