Based on the book Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems
Script and Lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma

Exposing the truth about being yourself and wearing it well.

The story of when rat met hat! Wilbur the Naked Mole Rat was just like all the other naked mole rats – naked – until the day an ordinary hat falls into his tunnel. Wilbur dares to try it on and his life changes forever! But his au naturel friends think he’s crazy and pressure him to 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!

The Big Ideas
Be open minded about people who are different.
Stand up for what you believe in.
