Get The Food Connection!

Building healthy bodies and happy audiences

Can you imagine children cheering for vegetables?

They do when they’re watching The Food Connection: A BB Broccoli and Sweet Potato Adventure.

This 45-minute musical adventure for children is full of action, humor and nutritional content; making it engaging entertainment for family series and school shows for kindergarten through 4th grade.

The Food Connection blends comedy, music and dance to help young audiences discover the links between food, health and having fun. The play is rich with curriculum tie-ins, and a Study Guide helps teachers connect the performance with classroom activities.

The Food Connection takes place in Iconland, where symbols live, and where the evil Dr. Smush and his sidekick Additive are plotting to take over the world by altering the Food Plate.

Fortunately for everyone’s health, our two valiant vegetables save the day, with help from the Titanium Cook and the Liberated Lunch Lady, songs like “Vegetables Can Save the World” and their own fiber content.

The Food Connection is a production of TAPIT/new works Ensemble Theater, an internationally touring performing arts group founded in Madison, Wisconsin in 1985. The Food Connection features an original score, eye-popping sets, fanciful costumes and the company’s award winning producing artistic directors, Donna Peckett (choreographer & actor) and Danielle Dresden (playwright & actor) playing six characters.
