Lively musical version of "Corduroy" comes to the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts


Theatreworks/USA brings its energetic musical version of the beloved children's story "Corduroy" to Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on Sunday, Oct. 19, at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The show is geared for children in kindergarten through fourth grade.

This new musical is set in Harlem and features a lively jazz and R&B score that's sure to please audience members of all ages.
