Henry loves books.  But he hates reading them. Because books are so full of… words! Annoying, complicated, indecipherable words! Then one day he discovers the most amazing alternative to reading – eating the books whole. By chowing down, chomping, and literally digesting the contents of whole libraries, Henry gets smarter, and smarter and smarter… until his tummy doesn’t feel so good. A story about literally biting off more than you can chew, this new musical celebrates the joy of reading and the insatiable appetite for knowledge. Inspired by award-winning children’s book author Oliver Jeffers’ hilarious book,The Incredible Book Eating Boy promises to leave you full! For tickets and information, visit
