Children’s Present Stuart Little

Stuart Little by the NECC children’s theater class opened Friday, May 1 at 10:30 a.m. to a small audience.

Stuart Little is the story of a walking, talking, car driving mouse who is adopted by the Little family. The older brother, George, is not happy to welcome Stuart into the family, creating a very unusual sibling rivalry. The only character more reluctant to accept him is the family cat, Snowbell.

The story is based on a classic children’s novel written in 1945 by E.B. White and was released in 1999 as an American family comedy film with an all-star cast, including such greats as Michael J. Fox, Geena Davis and Hugh Laurie.

Though the budget was considerably smaller for NECC’s performance, this small cast did a great job creating a very entertaining show.
