Virginia Rep's Children's Theatre of Virginia opens Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile on Friday, March 1 at Willow Lawn, 1601 Willow Lawn Drive. The show will run through April 5, 2013 with added matinees to accommodate the public school spring break schedule. Based on the beloved children's books, The House on East 88th Street and Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile by Bernard Waber, the musical shares the magical adventures of Josh Primm and his misfit (but very special) reptilian pet - Lyle! The original music and lyrics are by Bruce Craig Miler, Artistic Director of Virginia Repertory Theatre.
Under the direction of Chase Kniffen, this funny musical features old favorites and new faces: Jan Guarino, Mark Persinger, Durron Tyre, Paul Major, Christie Jackson, and Kyle Cornell. Chase is the Associate Artistic Director for Virginia Rep and won the 2010, 2011, and 2012 RTCC Award for Best Director of a Musical for his work on The Sound of Music, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Spring Awakening. Most recently he directed Madeline's Christmas.
The show lasts about one hour and is best enjoyed by children 3 years and older with plenty of humor to entertain older kids and adults.
