Martha Speaks is a musical based on the books Martha Speaks and Martha Calling written by Susan Meddaugh. The books were adapted for the stage by Kevin Delaguila, and set to lyrics by Jill Abramovitz with the music of composer Brad Alexander. The play follows the adventures of Helen, her family, and their dog Martha.
One day Martha eats a bowl of alphabet soup and begins to talk! Martha shocks everyone and quickly learns to use the telephone. Even though she is forbidden, she calls into a radio station for a trivia contest and wins the family an all-expenses-paid trip to a luxurious hotel. There is only one problem – the hotel has a no pets allowed policy. Will Martha’s family go on vacation without her or will Martha’s clever way with words save the day?
The performance is approximately 55 minutes and recommended for children ages 3-10.
Individual tickets ($11 at the door; $9.50 in advance) can be ordered online at www.trustarts.org/kids, by calling (412) 456-6666, or in person at the Box Office at Theater Square, 655 Penn Avenue. Group tickets can be ordered by calling (412) 471-6930.
