Max & Ruby
, two animated rabbits teach tots how to get along with others. In todays live stage version at Playhouse Square, six-year-old Ruby wants to put on a play about a princess and enlists her four-year-old brother Max to help. But he wants to be a cowboy. Trouble ensues. The hour-long musical (which is based on Rosemary Wells popular books) is part of Playhouse Squares Discovery Theatre Series for kids. Its an introduction to the performing arts for children, says spokesman Tom Sarago. In addition to being so damn cute, the bunnies also teach children the merits of respect, sharing, and sibling harmony.
