Dragons Love Tacos & Other Stories
When Papa canâ€™t get his chicken to sleep, he must improvise a series of bedtime stories! The result is a musical revue of five beloved contemporary children's books including Dragons Love Tacos, Interrupting Chicken, Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa School Days, The Dot, and Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride, which have been adapted into short musicals by some of todayâ€™s most exciting musical theater writers.
Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri
Dragons love all sorts of tacosâ€”except spicy ones! When a boy throws his new dragon friends a spicy salsa taco party, red-hot trouble ensues.
Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein
Itâ€™s bedtime for the little red chicken. Papa is going to read her a story, but the chicken canâ€™t help interrupting. Will the chicken ever get to sleep?
The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds
A story about the creative spirit in all of us. Vashti canâ€™t draw. When her teacher says, â€œJust make a mark and see where it takes you,â€ Vashti discovers she is an artist, after all.
Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride by Kate DiCamillo, Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen
Mercy, a porcine wonder, and Mr. Watson go for a ride every Saturday in Mr. Watsonâ€™s automobile. But one Saturday, guess who winds up behind the wheel?
Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa School Days by Erica Silverman, painted by Betsy Lewin
Yee Haw! Cowgirl Kate and her loyal horse Cocoa are the perfect pair. They do everything together until school is in sessionâ€”and horses are not allowed!
Renewal is an evening-length work that unpacks the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again – dramatizing how we re-invent ourselves again and again over time. Renewal will be composed of a series of shorts that shift the physical and visceral present movement, re-starting, reclaiming, and revitalizing our experience of it. Each short will highlight signature structures and elements in Selwyn’s style including gesture, partnering, virtuosic artistry juxtaposed with pedestrian movement, humor, character, and theatricality. With Selwyn’s fresh and vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, energy, release, touch, and balance, she will activate emotional expression and offer many in-roads for audiences to make meaning for themselves.
“Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion – she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production.” - Inside New Yorkâ€¨â€¨

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre creates original and dynamic dance theatre that raises questions, challenges social norms and values, and magnifies humanity through dance. Productions pivot around core themes and through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage. Presenting dance in an immediate, mature, and inclusive way, we engage audiences from start to finish and beckon a response of thought, feeling, and soul. www.amandaselwyndance.org
