“Llama Llama Red Pajama Live!”, a new musical by Bay Area Children’s Theatre (BACT) inspired by the best-selling Llama, Llama Red Pajama series of picture books by the late Anna Dewdney.
Families can join in the fun when Llama bursts into his bedroom looking frantically for his favorite red pajamas. Mama, hearing the commotion, comes upstairs with Llama’s pajamas in the laundry basket to ask about his day—his very first day at school—and put him to bed. But when she goes downstairs to do the million things that busy mothers have to do at the end of the day, Llama is too wiggly to fall asleep, and besides, he’s thirsty. He howls for Mama to come back up, but she doesn’t arrive. Will she ever return?
