ArtsPower was recently named as one of America’s top 12 touring theatre companies “that make a difference” across the United States. Based in New Jersey, this children’s theater company produces musical theater productions based on classic children’s literature. Murray City typically hosts one of their productions each year for local school children.
This year's ArtsPower Assembly was a colorful new musical telling the story of Nugget, a minnow, and Fang, a shark, who get along swimmingly until Nugget's first day of minnow school. There, Nugget learns that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks! To regain Nugget's trust, Fang takes desperate and hilarious measures. Nothing goes as planned. Fang is moping in deep waters when he notices that Nugget and his minnow school-mates are caught up in some big trouble (and one very big net). Holy mackerel! Can Fang save the day and prove he's a true friend?
