Really Rosie is a story, written by Maurice Sendak, (Where the Wild Things Are). Really Rosie is a musical story with songs by Carol King based on the stories and lyrics of Maurice Sendak’s books Chicken Soup with Rice, Pierre, One was Johnny, Alligators All Around and The Sign on Rosie's Door. The story follows a typical summer day in the life of several neighborhood friends, including Pierre, Alligator, Johnny and Chef Jeff. Rosie, the self-proclaimed sassiest kid on her block of Brooklyn's Avenue P, entertains everyone by directing and starring in a movie based on the exciting, dramatic, funny (and slightly exaggerated) story of her life.
These presentations will be performed by Ginger Coyle, local recording artist and Mom to Rosie for these special engagements. The stunning and sultry voice of this New Jersey born singer, songwriter will bring all of the characters to life and create a wonderful, enjoyable experience for children and grown-ups alike.
