Stinky Kid Britt loves making everyone happy. But this girl, who never gets in trouble, is in a sticky situation—literally.  She has an impossibly epic wad of gum stuck in her hair. All of Britt’s friends are depending on her parents to take them to the new MegaJumper 3000 at Captain Happy’s Jumpy-Fun-Super-Bouncy Indoor Place, so she definitely doesn’t want to disappoint anyone. Britt must rely on her mischievous friends to help her before her parents find out, as they embark on an unexpected adventure across their neighborhood. Lessons in this musical include learning about being a good leader, going to parents when there is a problem and how to handle having more than one best friend.

All public performances of “Stinky Kids the Musical” are Saturdays with breakfast at 9 a.m. and lunch at noon. An evening performance has been added March 20 at 5:45 p.m. All performances feature a kid-friendly menu. This production is most suitable for ages 3 to 12.

“Stinky Kids the Musical” is based on the successful book series by Britt Menzies with music by Daniel Acquisto and book and lyrics by Sammy Buck. Derby Dinner’s production is under the direction of Tina Jo Wallace and the cast includes Katelyn Webb, Marina Hart, Alfie Jones, Mitch Donahue, Charity Means, and Zachary Burrell. Songs featured in “Stinky Kids the Musical” are “”Stuck Together,” “Open Up,” “Maybe This Is a Mistake,” “I Promise” and more. n
