Back by popular demand after a sold-out 2023 run! The Pigeon, Bus Driver, and some zany passengers sing and dance their way to helping The Pigeon find his “thing” in this upbeat, energetic comedy based on four of Mo Willems’ popular Pigeon books. Featuring a live band to bring Deborah Wicks La Puma’s jazzy score to life, our audiences will thoroughly enjoy singing and flapping along with The Pigeon and friends.

 "Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" is a perfect way to introduce children to theatre and the humorous stories from Willems' books.  Families learn about the power of persistence, the importance of trying new things, and handling big emotions.

By Mo Willems and Mr. Warburton 
​Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma
Produced by special arrangement from Music Theater International.
