FREE Opera for Kids! Mooch the Messy

The show is specifically recommended for preschool and elementary school-aged children. It’s based on the 1979 book by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat and tells the story of Mooch, a rat from Boston, who learns about neatness and responsibility when his father comes for a visit. He also learns to be himself in a delightful mix of humor, music and fun.

You can see Mooch the Messy Saturday, October 12th at 12 p.m. or 2 p.m. at The Boston Conservatory’s newly renovated Seully Hall, located at 8 The Fenway in Boston. You can also catch special showings on Monday, October 14th (Columbus Day) at the Boston Children’s Museum at 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. The Conservatory show is free; and the museum show is free with the purchase of admission.
