Based on the book Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems
Script and Lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma
“They are a little bit rat. They are a little bit mole. They are all naked.”
Wilbur is not your average naked mole rat: he loves to wear clothes. He’s got a huge wardrobe full of cool outfits, including an astronaut costume! But his au natural friends think he’s crazy and pressure him give up his clothes-wearing ways. From three-time Caldecott Honoree Mo Willems, this cheeky musical shows that individualism can, and should, be worn proudly!
