Running a farm is hard work, especially with cows that type, hens on strike, and a duck who’s always causing trouble. So Farmer Brown takes off for a well-deserved vacation, leaving his brother Bob, an accountant from the city, in charge. Soon it’s no work and all play (and cake, pizza, movies, and bubble baths...) as the animals run wild, taking advantage of Bob’s lack of experience. Will the animals come clean about their devious tricks, or is there more to Brother Bob than meets the eye? Take a break from the grind with the gang from Farmer Brown’s farm with our hit musical adaptation of the 2002 New York Times bestselling book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.
