Atlantic Theatre Company is coming to Nazareth College for two performances of "Ivy and Bean: The Musical." The staccato 60-minute production is based on the wildly popular children's book series of the same name. The books follow the adventures of two mismatched friends: Ivy, reserved and thoughtful, is by chance thrown into cahoots with frenetic and exuberant Bean, and friendship ensues. The two different girls overcome all sorts of challenges together — like crime, fossil extraction, science conundrums, and Second Grade. The stories of Ivy and Bean are a testament to the value of friends that challenge and contrast.
"Ivy and Bean: The Musical" will be performed on Saturday, February 7, at Nazareth College's Callahan Theater, 4245 East Avenue. 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. $17-$20. artscenter.naz.edu.
